In this first episode of the series, Matthew and Cindy explore the issue of food and farming innovation.
They speak to Jenny Walton of Harvest Plus about the biofortification of crops and the standards supporting those developments.
And to Cai Linton from the organization Multus about some of the technology involved in lab-cultivated meat and the changes it could make to the way we consume protein.
They also speak to Lynsey Dunbar from the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre about plant-based solutions to developing greener fuels.
Their final guest is academic and standards maker James Loewenberg de Boer from Harper Adams University. They speak to him about robots and the ‘smart farming’ revolution.
And Sara Walton joins them to provide a BSI perspective.
It’s also the second birthday of the podcast, so in celebration there’s tea and cake involved.
