Mission Statement, Vision and Strategy

Mission Statement

The food sector is an important contributor to the GDP of Wales, offering employment throughout the country and producing high quality raw materials, particularly in the red meat and dairy sectors. However, the food industry has become an increasingly complex arena in which to operate. 

Food procurement is now undertaken on a global scale and there are many other forces, including political and environmental concerns, which make developing or growing a business in this extremely competitive industry a challenge. It's hardly surprising, then, that many companies fail due to lack of expertise or resources in specific areas.

Our mission within the ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre is:

"To support Welsh-based food businesses in both a technical and operational capacity, enabling them to compete more effectively in the global market place by providing the knowledge, facilities and resources to help companies push their boundaries, achieve their goals and drive their businesses forward."


Vision and Strategy


​To grow the food and drink industry in Wales by supporting food business in all aspects of operational and technical activities.

​Our staff are regularly trained to ensure they are up to date with the latest industry changes.
