The UK’s food and drink sector has faced serious challenges over recent years — from Brexit and supply chain disruption to Covid and ever-rising prices.

We’re using automation and digitalisation to help make this crucial industry more resilient, one business at a time.

How we can help

We work with companies of all sizes to share knowledge and increase productivity. Taking ideas from our years of research and development in advanced manufacturing, we can suggest new ways of working that you may not have thought about before.

We’ll come to look around your business, talk to you about your challenges, and propose low-cost solutions to increase your productivity and reduce waste. As a non-profit organisation, there's no selling — just honest, expert advice and practical help.

From installing sensors to monitor energy use to introducing robotics on production lines, every year we help food and drink companies become more profitable and sustainable. We reduced a cake manufacturer’s waste by 25% and helped a beef jerky company increase its production to take more orders.

We also work with inventors, helping get a new product from an initial idea to large-scale manufacture.
