Innovation in the Food Supply Chain Roundtable 2 – Unlocking the potential of R&D and building implementation pathways for growth
While there is a broad consensus that the UK needs to improve the efficiency of its food system – and that the implementation of novel technologies in farming practices and across the food system is the most efficient route – it is unclear how to make this happen. While the UK is a global R&D power, too often new advances have not made it far enough along the innovation pathway to be implemented in commercial practices in the UK.

Roundtable 1: Innovation in the Food Supply Chain – Do we need an AgriTech strategy?
The introduction of a gene-editing bill to parliament on 25th May marked a monumental step in the post-Brexit era. Since 2018, it has been nearly impossible to grow gene-edited food in the EU at a commercial scale. However, now free to make its own regulations, the UK is seizing the chance to unlock its significant R&D infrastructure and reap the security and nutritional benefits of gene-editing.
