BIOGRAPHY

Ross Campbell is Director and Co-founder of CyberColloids Ltd. He has more than 40 years of experience in chemicals and food ingredients manufacturing. For the past decade, he has also been working on biotechnology processing and valorisation of waste streams. With his strong industry experiences, Ross is very much driven to ensure commercial success for his R&D and new product development projects. Since its founding in 2002, CyberColloids has become a well-recognised contract research to business development company specialising in polysaccharide and protein chemistry for food texture and nutrition; valorisation of different biomasses (fruit, vegetables, seaweed, etc.); aqueous extractions of bioactives using ceramic cross flow filtration; process scale up and pilot plant studies; and business strategy for new product launches. 

Prior to co-founding CyberColloids, Ross has worked for a number of different companies in various roles, including Dow Corning, 3M and Courtaulds, all involving polymers for many industrial applications. He then joined Quest International's Food Ingredient Division (now part of Kerry Group), where he headed the Hydrocolloids Business Unit.

Ross Campbell has a joint honours degree in Chemistry and Management Science from Stirling University.

PORTFOLIO

Seaweed Biorefinery

Led the CyberColloids team in this EU project which aimed to 100% valorise given seaweeds by extracting the hot and cold soluble bioactives (Fucoidan); and then activating the alginate within the biomass to produce a seaweed fiber which could act as a clean label gelling agent.
