Active Research & Development

Our broad remit means we play a hand in people's day-to-day life, from the food we eat, and the air we breathe, to the water we drink.

Our key focuses are aimed around identifying emerging issues in food authenticity and gaps in science and testing methodology that will help to protect consumers by addressing challenges like food fraud, misleading food labelling activity to improving land use policy and making science advances far more accessible.
