What We Do

Food for Health Ireland (FHI) unites world-class science and dairy industry know how in one Technology Centre aimed at developing, marketing and selling nutritional ingredients and functional ingredients to improve consumer’s health and wellness. This is quite unique in the world.

Development of ingredients and functional food products offers significant opportunities for the Irish food companies given Ireland’s traditional strengths as a dairy and beverage producer, the presence of a strong pharmaceutical industry base, ample availability of quality raw materials, state-of-the-art food and drink research centres and world class third level institutes.
