Food for the Future at Chelsea Flower Show

May 1st, 2013

World-leading research into global food security by the School of Biosciences is being showcased at the centenary RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The Food for the Future exhibit is based in the Great Pavilion, where visitors can talk to University researchers and find out what they are doing to help feed the world’s growing population.

Professor Neil Crout, Head of the School of Biosciences, said: “Achieving Global Food Security is the one of the most pressing issues facing the world today. Through sustained research our work is focused on developing crops that will feed our growing population, using fewer of the earth’s precious resources. This project is an excellent opportunity to showcase the School of Biosciences significant contribution to ensuring food for the future.”

The RHS Chelsea Flower Show takes place at the Royal Hospital, London, from Tuesday 21 May to Friday 25 May.
