The University of Nottingham’s Food Innovation Centre has helped create an innovative new ‘freeze-at-home’ ice lolly in partnership with a Nottingham-based start-up.
Nottingham entrepreneur Isaac Greenway-Tambini of Pola enlisted the help of food scientists at the University of Nottingham’s Food Innovation Centre to create new versions of the ice lollies his company produces.
The innovative new products can be frozen on delivery allowing the company to ship their products nationwide via mail order.
The Food Innovation Centre is part of the Driving Research and Innovation project, a three-year project that runs until the end of January 2023 in the D2N2 area of Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
Based at the University of Nottingham and in association with the Midlands Engine, it is a unique collaboration project that provides free specialist innovation support to small and medium-sized food and drink manufacturers.
The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund via D2N2.
This project is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020 in England.
