"We live in a changing world, one that faces global challenges such as climate change, increasing globalisation and population growth. In turn, these all affect our food security. Our food supply chains are also impacted by further drivers, which influence the ways we produce, manufacture, sell and consume food. Issues such as loss of pesticides (due to resistance and withdrawal), water security, health & nutrition, food fraud, invasive species and environmental sustainability have all become major challenges. The impact of these and others will continue to grow for the foreseeable future.
As a science-based organisation that works across the agri-food supply chain, Fera is ideally placed to address these challenges, providing effective solutions that solve real-world problems."
