The grant can contribute to up to 50% of the equipment cost and primarily covers B2B companies.Items purchased must exceed £500 in value and have a life expectancy of three years. Eligible projects must lead to the creation of at least one part-time job within six months or the creation of a new product or service to be used by other businesses.

It provides data about the consistency and texture of baked products.Kudos, which is based in Shropshire and specialises in leavening agents, added that this advancement in testing technology had already led to the recruitment of a new member of staff.“Our mission is to supply the global bakery industry with healthier leavening agents that deliver the superior quality bakers expect from Kudos Blends. The credibility of the data from the texture analyser will give us further evidence that our products deliver the health benefits and quality that potential customers are looking to achieve,” said Taylor.last_img read more
