R&D Tax Credit for the Food & Beverage Industry

Tax savings for food & beverage companies!

Research & Development in the Food & Beverage industry


The food and beverage industry is facing a new demand for ingredients that are healthier, eco-friendly, and taste great! As consumer preferences are evolving, food and beverage companies are engaged in more Research & Development (R&D) activities than ever before.

Latest R&D trends in this sector include plant-based foods, waste reduction and shelf life extension, non-GMO products, green & innovative packaging, and more.

Most food & beverage companies are unaware that their day-to-day operations could qualify for the Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credit, which rewards eligible companies with dollar-for-dollar tax savings on their income and/or payroll tax liability.

Examples of R&D activity in Food & Beverage

  • Improving texture or nutritional content of food product formulations
  • Integrating a new ingredient to a recipe
  • Improving machinery and equipment to ensure safe handling of food, improve productivity, and cost-efficiency
  • Creating new packaging to improve shelf life, durability, and product integrity
  • Developing innovative and/or environmentally friendly packaging material
  • Incorporating new or improved equipment into production lines
  • Experimental recipe development, including seasonal foods and drinks
