Food & Agriculture

Produced bi-annually, International Innovation Food, Agriculture & KBBE features articles and project analysis from the world’s most influential food, agricultural & KBBE agencies, think tanks and NGO’s. The publication is firmly focussed on the global issues affecting food, fisheries, KBBE and agricultural research including: addressing the growing demand for safer, healthier, higher quality food, ensuring the sustainable use and production of renewable bio-resources, tackling the increasing risk of epizootic and zoonotic diseases and food related disorders, sustainability and security of agricultural, aquaculture and fisheries production, coping with the increasing demand for high quality food and taking into account animal welfare and rural and coastal contexts and response to specific dietary needs of consumers.

The close editorial collaboration with major international associations, industry groups and events means this publication contains exclusive, unbiased interviews with leading political, research and NGO figures in the industry. By far the highest quality publication in its sector, International Innovation Food is produced in physical and digital format and reaches the wider food, fisheries, KBBE and agricultural community facilitating dialogue between the key researchers, stakeholders and policy makers.
