ZERO2FIVE Food & Drink Research Unit

The ZERO2FIVE Food Industry Centre Food and Drink Research Unit is at the forefront of its field with expertise in food and drink industry focused research, consumer food safety research in the domestic setting and food safety related healthcare research. The unit has its roots in over twenty years of multidisciplinary research activity contributed to by leading researchers in the fields that has been complimented with national and international collaborations.

The productivity of the Unit can be identified from publications in peer reviewed journals, media articles and invitations to present globally at industry conferences. The food safety research team annually present research at the major international food safety conferences; the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) and the IAFP’s European Symposium on Food Safety. Additionally, as members of the UK Affiliate for Food Protection, members of the research team organise and host the UK Association for Food Protection conference each year.

Food safety communication and outreach is also of great importance. We hold annual events for the general public in conjunction with the Food Standards Agency's Food Safety Week on various aspects of food safety.
