Since 1962, IFBM is one of the leading technical research and training centres in Europe. We carry out efficient consulting and research programs for food industry companies, especially for brewing, malting, cereal and beverage companies. We operate a unique pilot plant for experimental brewing and malting processes at different scales. We also perform technical training courses in French and in English. Our organisation is highly dedicated to the brewing-malting sector and has been closely linked to its actors since its creation, participating in their growth and supporting their developments and successes.
Its subsidiary, Qualtech Group, its laboratories and 300 employees provide analytical services: physicochemical, microbiological, food safety, sensory and molecular biology analysis to maltsters, brewers or any food industry company. These services are based on an advanced knowledge of the barley to beer chain and beverages.
