Mylnefield Research Services
Mylnefield Research Services (MRS) Ltd is a commercial affiliate of the James Hutton Institute based in Dundee, Scotland. MRS was founded in 1989 as wholly-owned subsidiary of the Scottish Crop Research Institute (SCRI). On the 1st April 2011, following the merger of SCRI with the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute in Aberdeen, the ownership of MRS transferred from SCRI to the James Hutton Institute.
The remit of MRS remains unchanged, to undertake contract research, especially plant breeding, license plant varieties internationally and deliver analytical services. Profits made by MRS will be gift aided to the James Hutton Institute.
You might not have heard of us but we are sure you have heard of many of the products we have helped develop. Did you know that the iconic brand Ribena only uses blackcurrants bred by us or that the leading organic potato variety in the UK was bred by us in collaboration with Greenvale AP.
This website gives details on how we can help your company, whether its through developing innovative new varieties of cereals, fruits and vegetables, analysing oils and fats or helping you in food authenticity and traceability.
