There is an ever-increasing demand for food, with the UK relying on both imports and exports to feed itself and drive economic growth. Behind the supermarket shelves lies a globalised supply chain that is sensitive to economic and environmental events, e.g. too much or too little rain can reduce or devastate harvests. This dynamic complexity, together with more demanding consumers and concerns about food safety and security, local sourcing and carbon footprints make this an exciting and challenging employment sector. To deal with these issues this course develops skills across business, agriculture and food disciplines, producing well-qualified managers who are sought after in the agri-food sector. The courses are built around a balanced programme of marketing, business, agriculture and food production so that you fully understand the concept of field to fork.
