Food Innovation Network

A new Food Innovation Network (FIN) was launched in October by the Environment Secretary, Andrea Leadsom. The aim is to provide British food businesses with access to research, skills and expertise and different funding mechanisms, which are currently impeding R&D and innovation [5].

An online portal will offer help with tackling complex issues, such as intellectual property and developing new technology, as well as providing access to first-class facilities, such as test kitchens and laboratories, to help food businesses launch new products into the market.

Defra, working with the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Enterprise Partnership and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), has appointed the Knowledge Transfer Network as the coordinator to take the project forward.
