Its all real now

I had one of those "its all real now" moments yesterday.

I was collecting langoustine from our generous suppliers SFO so we can start the fermenation experiments, and suddenly it felt like we were actually up and running and beginning to move forwards.

It has take a while to get to this point.

I first heard of this project, when it was just an embryonic idea about 4 years ago. Since then a lot has happened. The initial idea was totally scrapped as unworkable, the new idea took time to form, time to research and confirm and a LONG time to get the support of Scottish Enterprise through their SMART award scheme and Gabriel Investments to be able to make it happen.

But now, it is definitely happening.

We have a lab, we have a steady stream of equipment being installed and we have some experiments starting to test out the concepts and providing data to enable us to refine the plan.

Its a great feeling!
