Pyreos secures dairy deal with Bosch India

Andrew Wallace PyreosScottish technology firm Pyreos, which develops infra-red sensors used in food testing, has agreed a tie-up with Bosch India to analyse the quality of milk in the country’s enormous dairy industry.

India is already the world’s largest producer of milk employing 70 million in the sector, more than ten times the number in the European Union.

It has significant potential to grow by improving efficiency and Pyreos will help with research and data.

The company, based at the Scottish Microelectronics Centre on the University of Edinburgh’s King’s buildings campus, was spun out of Siemens in 2007 and has developed and patented sensors which can be used in food quality testing such as milk analysis.  

Andrew Wallace, chief executive, said: “We have been working to combine Bosch India’s immense engineering and product expertise together with our unique sensor technology to identify products which can be trialled in the Indian market in 2016.

“Indian milk output has grown fast and team has been focussed on delivering quality technology, which will help improve milk quality and the Indian dairy industry’s profitability.  Pyreos is delighted to have participated in this joint development.”

Pyreos and Bosch India will continue their co-operation and launch Product Pilots across India in 2016.
