What we do
Our team is responsible for driving innovation in the food sector in the regions of the UK, Ireland and Iceland.
We work closely with a unique network of partners including key industry players, agrifood startups, research centres and universities from our regions. Together, and as part of the wider EIT Food Community, we are all working together to deliver an innovative and entrepreneurial food sector.
In our region, our goal is to support the food sector to produce healthy and sustainable food, trusted by society. We will achieve this goal by:
- Creating and scaling-up the most impactful regional agrifood startups to deliver new food innovations and businesses
- Developing local talents and leaders to transform our food system
- Working with our regional partners to launch new innovative products and ingredients to deliver healthier and more sustainable food
- Engaging the public at both a local and regional level so that they can become the agents of change in our food system
