Global firm Diana Food (France) has opened a Canadian R&D laboratory in Quebec City, which will focus on creating new products and processes for consumer health. At the facility, scientists, including those from Diana’s labs in France, will focus on extracting polyphenols from locally sourced materials like cranberries and blueberries to be used in healthy applications like dietary supplements. The R&D lab is also located near Diana’s Consumer Health Plant, allowing for easy knowledge and technology transfer, the company says.

The company will also draw from regional resources, including Quebec’s fruit-producing region. In a press release, Rob Evans, director of R&D at Diana Food, said, “The decision to create this new lab emphasizes Diana’s commitment to the market, the North American scientific community, and the company’s long-term growth in the consumer health category.”
