Northern powerhouse

The North of England region is a diverse, vibrant network of members connected by geography, a passion for food and drink and a love of science. The counties in the North of England have for many years provided students and graduates of food science with the possibility to continue their education at one of many esteemed centres of learning or to take employment with and develop their careers furthering the success of food production businesses right across the region.

A handful of members have already expressed an interest in establishing a vibrant network for the support and guidance of any member, in education or industry, across the region by getting the North of England Branch up and running again.

We would like to hear from members interested in helping out in these areas even by just suggesting ideas for ways in which the North of England Branch could be useful to you in your current role.
