The food and drink industry is extremely important to the UK/Scottish economy and Abertay research within the Division of Engineering and Food Science is at the forefront of new developments and knowledge transfer in food innovation and sustainability.

Current research projects cover a range of food science and technology topics.

Experts in the Division are also researching aspects of human nutrition and public health and have been contributing to Scottish Government policy on food and dietary issues specifically pertaining to Scotland.

We collaborate closely with industry and external research institutes and have excellent laboratory and pilot plant facilities for research and new product development, together with a state-of-the art sensory suite for consumer evaluation of novel food and drink products.
