Since 1997 Richter International has teamed with the Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle) to provide comprehensive problem-solving and research capabilities in the area of food safety, quality, and security.

Battelle is governed by a self-perpetuating Board of Directors and is a charitable trust organized as a non-profit corporation under the laws of the State of Ohio. Since 1929 Battelle has been serving industry and government in the development of new technologies and products. Battelle and the labs it manages and co-manages has a staff of 16,000 scientists, engineers, and support specialists. Each year, thousands of technology projects are in progress at Battelle's various business operations. These projects are performed for nearly 2,000 companies and government agencies. Battelle conducts $2.7 billion in annual research and development. Typically, this work results in between 50-100 patented inventions each year.
