Posted on behalf of Gordon Paul, Devro

I am the group Head of Research at Devro, a company specialising in the manufacture of collagen based food films. We are an international business with manufacturing facilities in Europe, N America and Australia, with an extensive netowrk within the meat industry, also having expertise in collagen and manufacture of processed meat products. I am interested in recovering materials from food-chain waste, particularly materials rich in collagen from tissues/products that do not currently go into the food chain although obtained from which from animals fit from human consumption i.e cat 3 waste.  Recovering of collagen and other biopolymers from food waste to be use outside our core business is also of interest.
