Mile High Food Science is expanding its operations by launching a new R&D facility in Denver, Colorado, and establishing a commercial office in Los Angeles, California, as part of its new agreement with Aseppak¬†Global based on their 18 years of trajectory in developing food and beverages nationally and internationally.¬†
‚ÄčSince¬†2018, Mile High Food Science has been allocating funds into¬†research and development¬†of active compounds such as¬†CBD¬†and¬†terpenes.¬†The funds have been part of a joint venture deal with¬†Aseppak¬†Global, a company with stakes in leading international labs like¬†Cannasoul¬†and¬†Eybna.
The new “state-of-the-art” facility is equipped to develop, test and optimize¬†beverage formulations and active compounds and ingredients.¬†The facility is also designed to support¬†aseptic¬†processing and testing in line with the best¬†food safety¬†practices in general and for wellness products in particular.¬†Mile High Food Science¬†is currently working with top food and beverage firms in the¬†U.S., Canada, Israel and Europe.
Cannasoul, the analytical lab partly owned by¬†Technion Institute of Technology¬†in Tel Aviv, Israel, led by¬†Dr. David¬†Meiri¬†and¬†Dr. Shmuel Mandel,¬†is known worldwide for its biological research into¬†cannabinoids¬†for medical and wellness purposes.¬†Eybna, the Israeli company with offices in the¬†U.S.¬†and¬†Canada,¬†is specialized in¬†terpene¬†research and development.¬† Mile High Food Science will play an important role as the¬†food and beverage¬†arm of this international partnership led by¬†Aseppak¬†Global.
The new facility will open in the metro area of¬†Denver, Colorado,¬†in¬†June 2020.¬†The team is led by¬†Brandon and Barbara Shepherd, microbiologists who have been food science leadership for almost two decades working with many of the largest food and beverage companies in the world.¬†The company is also opening a commercial office in¬†Los Angeles, California,¬†beginning¬†June¬†2020.
The food industry is experiencing new challenges.¬†Food safety¬†is a top priority for consumers, brands and manufacturers.¬†While companies continually innovate, there is a need to¬†mitigate risk¬†and make¬†R&D investments¬†as efficient as possible.¬†
The most typical hurdles both¬†big brands¬†and¬†startups¬†face when launching products are¬†speed to market,¬†waste reduction, ensuring¬†product quality,¬†sustainable raw materials,¬†impactful¬†marketing¬†and delighting consumers with¬†great-tasting products¬†while driving¬†repeat purchases.¬† ¬† ¬†
Aseppak¬†Global‚Äôs investment into¬†Mile High Food Science¬†looks to address these issues and help pave the way for companies and entrepreneurs with cutting-edge ideas for the¬†booming wellness market.¬†Some of the current developments include products specifically designed to address¬†key¬†lifestyle¬†needs through training, sleep-aid,¬†social,¬†appetite management,¬†relaxation¬†and¬†brain-boosting¬†formulas, among others.
