The R&D staff at KMC are true disciples of the potato and what it can do – or be made to do.
Our R&D focus is on natural polymer chemistry, food technology and pretty much any other innovative technical capability we can apply to tackling our customers’ practical requirements and commercial priorities better. We’re always on the lookout for new ways to help you optimise your products – or find new ways of using KMC ingredients to make them more profitable for you.
Our staff are creative, highly qualified people who excel at spotting new and unconventional solutions to a wide range of practical difficulties. And at finding new angles that might be developed to meet your needs better.
Our R&D efforts actually take place throughout the company – ideas about small tweaks and new angles emerge all over the place when we’re working with practical customer issues and production challenges. This results in a creative, fast-acting innovation incubator eager to move beyond “traditional procedures”.
The R&D department also collates requests and suggestions from customers and KMC agents as well as our sales, KMC Application experts and QA specialists. We use all these inputs to develop and refine our ingredients and how they can be used in your production processes.
