Welcome to IMR International

"Good Information = Good Decisions"

Based in San Diego, California, IMR International is the leading industrial market research and consulting company in food hydrocolloids. Since 1985, we offer comprehensive studies, multi-client and single-client, on all food hydrocolloids. Our research data covers virtually all hydrocolloids, including: Agar, alginates, gum arabic, carrageenan, cassia, cellulosics (CMC, MCC, MC/HPMC), gelatin, gellan, guar, konjac, locust bean gum, pectin, starch, tara gum, and xanthan. Hydrocolloid producers, users, distributors, investment bankers, and many others, all make use of IMR's in-depth and focused market data in arriving at go/no-go decisions. Since 1996, IMR has organized the Annual Food Hydrocolloid Conference, a gathering of who's who in hydrocolloids. The conference alternates between Europe and the U.S. High level executives from the spectrum of the hydrocolloid supply chain gather to discuss: Where are we? Where are we going? and How do we get there?
We also provide customized studies on all aspects of hydrocolloids as well as some other food ingredients.

Since 1991 - Publisher of: The Quarterly Review of Food Hydrocolloids
