Coconut Collaborative Ltd: an A4I Case Study
Posted on 14/03/2019
The Coconut Collaborative Ltd (CCL) manufactures Coconut Yogurt for the UK and a wide international market. Based on its innovative products and strong market presence it has become the market leading coconut brand in the UK.
Sometimes, rancidity leads to complete batches of coconut yogurt being rejected. Checks for rancidity are currently performed manually, with batches of coconut cream being tasted ahead of their use in production. With the growth of the business, this is becoming increasingly impractical but there are currently no automated methods available to test for rancidity.
Through the Analysis for Innovators (A4I) partnership, CCL had access to innovative and advanced measurement and analytical technologies at both the National Measurement Laboratory (NML) at LGC and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) to assess the feasibility of developing a rapid and robust screening approach to detect rancidity in coconut cream.
