Leatherhead invests in global regulatory services
Following a successful year of integration into Science Group plc, Leatherhead Food Research is demonstrating its long term commitment to its Regulatory Advisory Services business.
2016 saw significant investment in the business, including new world class premises in Epsom; a broadening and deepening of innovation and advisory services; significant operational efficiencies; and access to a much larger specialist analyst and consultant pool. Science Group’s recently released 2016 financial results also affirmed the strong financial recovery of the Leatherhead business.
Reflecting the increased efficiency from the recent investment programme, Leatherhead has now announced a new and reconfigured pricing model with up to 50% price cuts in some services and geographies. At the same time, the company continues to expand the international breadth of the Regulatory Services business reflecting the demand for complex international advisory services.
“We believe we offer the broadest food & beverage regulatory services in the market, in terms of the countries and languages we cover and this has positioned us well in the market,” comments Chris Wells, Managing Director, Leatherhead. “We increasingly see that our clients and members are looking for a single expert provider for all their regulatory requirements; from advice on UK and EU labelling and product formulations through to international advice for those companies with global growth aspirations. We believe that our new pricing structure reflects market needs and our commitment to ensuring the quality and impact of what we deliver to clients.”
The regulatory price changes announced are applicable to member and non-member companies and are effective immediately.
