Food and Beverage

Food and Beverage Industry

In this modern day, the complexity of maintaining the production-to-consumption food system is incomprehensible; populations are growing, the environment is unstable, our food diversity is reducing and food sources are dwindling. Often, these issues are also exacerbated by the requirement to keep food stuffs abundant, safer for longer, tasty, nutritious, convenient, low cost and readily accessible.

In order to deliver this vastly complex food system, there are demands in every area of the food supply chain, including agricultural production and harvesting, raw material storage, all areas of food manufacturing, including formulation, testing, processing and packaging, distribution and also retailing.

Don’t be fooled; there is as much research and development in the Food and Beverage field as there is in any mainstream scientific sector! For the first time ever, 2016 saw the UK Food and Drinks Industry grow to a massive Global revenue of over £20 billion!
