On the evening of Friday the 13th, our company announced the opening of our new offices in gatewayUCC. Friends, family and colleagues all gathered as the Minister for Enterprise, Jobs and Innovation, Sean Sherlock, officially opened the new offices.
“It is vital that we continue on the path of ensuring the changes are positive and sustainable for all those within the food industry,” said Minister Sherlock, “Supporting companies like SRL Research is key to ensuring we remain at the forefront of new and exciting opportunities.”
The Lord Mayor of Cork, Catherine Clancy, and UCC’s VP of Research, Anita Maguire, also spoke at the event welcoming SRL to the Gateway building and wishing us success in the future.
The company also announced the merger with Independent Sensory Services, an Irish sensory company that specializes in food and beverage new product development, quality assessments, shelf life and taint testing. Margaret Shine, our CEO, said that the merger with ISS was based on a mutual commitment to quality and best practices. “Both its principal, Liz Sheehan, and I have the same high standard and commitment to being at the cutting edge of new research technology.” The new partnership will enable SRL to consolidate its position in the Irish market, while also increasing our resources and sustaining growth internationally.
