Worldwide Research and Applications

The mission of BetaTec Hop Products is the development of novel applications for hop products outside of the traditional market – the brewing industry.

 

From our centers of research located strategically in both North America and Europe, our scientists are constantly adding to our core knowledge of hop functionality. We are also continuously evaluating the complementary effects of other naturally derived substances for the creation of new or improved functionality of our existing hop products.

Speed, flexibility and technical competence has made BetaTec Hop Products the world leader in the “beyond brewing” applications of hop products. We offer our global customers application development, technical support and consulting services. Our goal is to insure your product, and your production efficiency is the best it can be.

Research & Development

R&D at the BIC is driven by a team of experts who specialize in a wide range of scientific disciplines.

New knowledge and data to support BetaTec’s clients—both current and potential—is the focus of the daily agenda at BIC. Daily activities are managed by a R&D lab manager and a team—passionate about the challenges they face.

Educational institutions and industrial partners also collaborate with BetaTec at their Innovation Centre.
