Waitrose Centre for Sustainable Agriculture Opens

Story supplied by LU Press Office

The new Waitrose Centre for Sustainable Agriculture will provide academic research, training to professionals working in the food industry - including suppliers such as farmers - as well as an MSc in Sustainable Food Crop Production.

Launched in partnership with Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC), the centre will focus on issues such as improving food quality as well as reducing the impact of food production on the environment. It will also seek to develop new ways of integrating agriculture with regional development. The centre is one of five key areas identified by LEC as in need of academic research ranging from sustainable energy to water and chemical management.
