Leading Growth in Research and Product Development

The Richardson Innovation Centre is a state-of-the-art food product and quality testing facility. A block away from Richardson International head office, the Innovation Centre is located in the heart of downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba.


Innovation in Action

Housing the Richardson Food & Ingredients division, the Innovation Centre is a hub of collaboration. Designed to foster partnerships with the local food science and culinary community, the Innovation Centre features product development suites, plant simulation areas, and a commercial demonstration kitchen. We are constantly exploring new ideas to support improvement and innovation in our range of ingredient and food product offerings as well as processing by-products.

Analytical and microbiology labs offer industry-leading equipment for our food safety and quality assurance teams. Grain grading for the entire Richardson Pioneer network flows through the QA team at the Innovation Centre. Our rigorous QA process is part of our commitment to excellence and service – to our grower customers, to our export customers, and to the customer buying a Richardson product at their local grocery store, bakery, or local restaurant.
