Crisp Sensation Asia signed agreement with Food Innovation & Resource Centre (FIRC)

Innovative crumb coating technology now available in Asia / R&D lab in Singapore

The successful Crisp Sensation technology is now available in Asia and can offer local R&D activities. In the presence of the Dutch Ambassador, Crisp Sensation just signed an important cooperation agreement with Food Innovation & Resource Centre (FIRC) in Singapore. Because of this cooperation, Crisp Sensation now has lab facilities available in Asia to support customers who aim to use their cutting-edge technology to boost the performance of crumb-coated foods and snacks. FIRC in turn can now expand their service portfolio with a highly innovative technology.

Earlier this year, Carlos van der Linden, CEO, opened Crisp Sensation’s Asian headquarters in Singapore. Last week, Mr van der Linden, Mr Robert Smees (Chairman Crisp Sensation Holding) and Mrs Georgina Phua (Senior Director Singapore Polytechnic) signed a co-operation agreement between Crisp Sensation Group and Food Innovation and Resource Centre (FIRC) for regional R&D activities, to develop samples for Asian manufacturers who aim to use the technology. The R&D activities will be performed in Singapore, Japan and South Korea by the FIRC staff under supervision of IFS, a Crisp Sensation company. FIRC staff will be trained at IFS’ central lab facilities in the Netherlands. The speech of Dutch Ambassador Jacques Werner underlined the significance of the cooperation, which supports Singapore as the Asian hub for Food & Beverage.
