The Institute of Food Research (IFR) transitioned into the Quadram Institute Bioscience in April 2017. This restructuring was in preparation for moving to the Quadram Institute which is being constructed in partnership with the University of East Anglia and Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

Foundation[edit]

The Institute of Food Research was created in 1968; 50 years ago (1968), when it was spread over four sites; the Meat Research Institute (MRI) at Langford near Bristol, the Food Research Institute (FRI) at Colney in Norwich, the National Institute for Research in Dairying (NIRD) in Shinfield near Reading, and the Long Ashton Research Station (food related departments only of the last two). At the end of 1990, the Meat Research Institute Bristol laboratory was closed, and in 1992, the National Institute for Research in Dairying Reading laboratory was moved onto the campus of the University of Reading. In 1998, it was decided that the Institute's activities should be consolidated in one location: Norwich, which was completed in September 1999.[2]
