About Us

​Professor David Lloyd, Director of ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre

The ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre employs 10 experienced food and drink technologists including business specialists and 8 senior lecturers and professors. Collectively, this team specialise in all aspects of food and drink processing and manufacturing operational and technical issues.

ZERO2FIVE is able to draw on expertise within Cardiff Metropolitan University, which includes Food Science, Nutrition and Dietetics as well as Environmental Health, Trading Standards and Biomedical Sciences.

Our team of internationally recognised food industry experts are available to assist our clients across a variety of food disciplines including baking, dairy and meat technologies, hygiene management, packaging design, technical management systems and new product development. ​

The Business Team provides marketing, market analysis, NPD, financial and trade engagement support for food and drink companies.  We can also assist companies in sourcing funding to minimise the financial burden usually associated with innovation change management in the private sector -  a factor that for many companies is the major stumbling block in their efforts to develop their businesses. Therefore businesses benefit from a coordinated approach that includes support from experts in food legislation, nutrition, technical and manufacturing.

Combining our team of experts with an already enviable track record of success, the ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre is here to help food businesses achieve world-wide recognition for excellence and, as a result, economic success.
