Aside from its range of academic programmes, the Holbeach based National Centre for Food Manufacture (NCFM) also offers employers:
The NCFM has a strong track record of working with the food industry sector in the development and delivery of training courses and the provision of food business support services. Alongside the Higher Education and Further Education Courses delivered both onsite and in the workplace, the NCFM also has extensive facilities and expertise which are available to the wide ranging food and drink sector from 'Field to Fork'.
The NCFM, LIAT (University of Lincoln) with partners FRPERC (Food Refrigeration and Process Engineering Research Centre at Grimsby Institute) are working as partners on a European Regional Development Fund Project (ERDF) to support agri-food businesses and their supply chains in the Greater Lincolnshire LEP area, for innovation of products, processes and services.
This may take the form of support and applied research for taking a product, for example, from concept to launch, which may be achieved with this project or through the identification of further projects from the support provided in this.
You can find out more, and how to get in touch about this, via our ERDF Leaflet
