Research and innovation

Award-winning research and innovation comes through the work of the Food Authenticity and Research Services (FARAS), which offers testing and services to ensure integrity.

NTU offers additional expertise in the field of food legislation and labelling, and attracts partners from across the UK. These include companies such as 2 Sisters Food Group, Greencore, Nestlé and Unilever.

Filling the skills gap

Worth £96 billion, food and drink is the largest manufacturing sector in the UK, with key issues for the sector including the ageing workforce and the ability to attract talent. We help to solve the skills gap by providing training through CPD, sponsored programmes and apprenticeships.

Biomedical Facilities
