N8 Agri-Food 2018

The N8 AgriFood Conference, hosted in Liverpool in June, brought researchers and industry together to review innovative approaches in food systems and sustainability.

Anna Gregson, Laura Clews and Dean Houston, members of the Mathys & Squire Agri-tech and Food team, attended the fascinating two-day event. A range of speakers explored hot topics within the industry, including sustainable consumer choices, new technologies in food manufacturing & processing, food waste, social innovation in food poverty and supply chain resilience. Mathys & Squire Partner, Anna Gregson, chaired a talk that considered the importance of intellectual property when innovating in the Agri-food industry.

Anna commented, “This well-attended annual event brings together stakeholders from all disciplines within the Agri-Food sector. The event discussed some fascinating and important topics regarding the critical issue of food sustainability, discussing the challenges ahead as well as offering solutions for the future. There was a real buzz about the event which brought together key players from industry and academia to exchange ideas and explore new collaborations. Mathys & Squire were proud to sponsor the event!”
