Many congratulations to Andrea Doolan, Co-Founder and CEO of Atlantia Food Clinical Trials and APC Microbiome Ireland Alumnus who has  been awarded the Matheson Female Entrepreneur of the Year 2018 at the Women Mean Business (WMB) .  Nominations across WMB’s six Award Categories for 2018 covered a diverse range of industries – manufacturing; pharma; medical; marketing; education; financial; technology; social; recruitment; childcare, homecare to name just a few. 

Atlantia Food Clinical Trials Ltd., a world-class clinical studies research company providing full service study expertise to the global food, beverage and health supplements sector, was spun out of APC Microbiome Ireland in 2013.   Since then the company’s client base has grown to include some of the largest food companies in the world across the USA, Europe, China, Japan and New Zealand. Clients come to Atlantia to conduct research on a particular health claim that they wish to assert on a new or existing product. Atlantia employs 25 highly experienced personnel and there are plans for expansion both at its base in Cork and in the US.
