Physics in food manufacturing
Together, food and drink make up the biggest manufacturing sector in the UK, accounting for 19% of manufacturing turnover. Our members and clients will be aware of the vital role of science and technology in supporting this sector. A recent initiative by the Institute of Physics (IoP) has recognised the importance of the food industry for its members, and as an area where physics can deliver benefits.
The IoP has recently established a subject group for physics in food manufacturing, which we are supporting through Martin Whitworth. It will be holding a launch event on 18 September. The event is open to members and non-members of the IoP and will include an introduction to the group and presentations on Innovate UK funding opportunities and on Physics of Food by renowned speaker, Peter Barham.
