Yorkshire as a national focus for innovation in food manufacturing sustainability

In this webinar we will explore the opportunities and challenges for the food manufacturing sector to improve its financial and environmental sustainability by developing the production of higher value products such as chemicals, materials and fuels from food production side streams.

Yorkshire is a national stronghold for innovation in this area due to its high concentration of major food manufacturers, and because of specialist research and scale-up facilities at the University of York. It also helps meet our ambitions to become a carbon zero circular region: Circular Yorkshire.

The webinar is organised by BioVale as part of the THYME Project in partnership with Make it York for York Business Week and York and North Yorkshire LEP for Circular Yorkshire Month.

The event is open to all to attend.

The webinar will:

  • Showcase how food manufacturers in the region innovate to add value to food processing by products.
  • Highlight regulatory and policy challenges and opportunities.
  • Provide insight into valorisation types and technologies, facilities, expertise and capabilities in the region and gaps in the market.
