Our Purpose:

Innovation is key to the food industry. It helps us to grow and tackle key challenges

“One clear message is that business as usual is not an option. Major transformations of agricultural systems, rural economies and natural resource management are needed” – FAO, 2017.

We agree that doing nothing is not an option. Innovation and technology is essential to economic and environmentally sustainable food production for this generation and for future generations.

Reduce food and energy waste

At the start of this Century global food loss and waste amounts to between one-third and one-half of all food produced.

Increase marketable yield

Crop variability within a field decreases marketable yield. Understanding and reducing field variabiliy of a crop will yield higher returns for the supply chain.

Enhance produce quality

Understanding your crop, looking after it during harvest, storage and processing will prevent waste and increase the value of the crop.

Add value to the business

We are experts in extracting new compounds from crop residues and outgrade materials as a source of fuel or nutritional ingredient in the food supply chain.

We build through collaboration

The company has seen great success across many projects, working with several collaborators/partners including universities, agricultural clients and Innovate UK. It is important we build new relationships and build on existing collaborations to grow as a business and expand our project portfolio.
