The National Non-Food Crops Centre Company Profile

01:44 EDT 18th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

In 2001 the Office of Science and Technology's Foresight Panel 'Food Chain and Crops for Industry Task Force: unlocking the potential of industrial crops' recommended that 'a respected, independent centre of know-how should be created with a remit to bring together all the existing and potential players to facilitate developments in the non-food area'.
The Government stated its commitment to extending the competitive non-food uses of crops, and accepted the need, for a long-term strategy for creating and exploiting opportunities in non-food crops in the "Strategy for Sustainable Farming and Food", published in December 2002. The Government announced that it was working with partners to establish a non-food crops centre to drive forward innovation, and the creation of the NNFCC fulfils this commitment
