Business and academia join forces to tackle UK food security

In light of increasing population growth and competition over land use, the National Centre for Universities and Business (NCUB) is experimenting with collaboration between agronomy experts and companies in the food supply chain.

 The non-profit NCUB, which represents around 100 companies and universities, established a cross-sector taskforce in July 2013 to promote innovation and sustainability in the UK’s agri-food sector. Based on their work, the group is due to publish a list of policy recommendations and action points in February 2015.
