Deadline: TBC Leading Edge Only currently have three challenges that food companies are facing. Do you have the knowledge or technology to assist? Ready Meal Technology: “European manufacturer of ready meals searching for innovative technologies which they can apply to their product line in order to a) deliver better food faster and b) increase the overall appeal of the food.” For more information, click here Bakery Technology Challenge: “A major branded food company with significant baking interests. The Innovation Challenge is to identify a technology that allows an unbaked product (dough not part bake) that is processed in home using a proprietary system and to then deliver a finished, high quality bread, in significantly less time than it takes to produce a loaf in a bread-maker.” For more information, click here. Sulphite Replacement Challenge: “A leading supplier of juice-based dilutable drinks in the UK faces the challenge of re-formulation. Currently these products rely heavily on the use of sulphites to prevent the non-enzymic browning of the fruit juice content therein. Sulphite residues in foods have been found to be responsible for some severe allergic reactions in susceptible individuals, usually asthmatics. The FSA has therefore restricted use of sulphites in certain categories of foods. There is mounting pressure for sulphites to be reduced, or removed from, squash products.” For more information, click here.

Field Studies Council, FSC, is the only environmental education charity dedicated solely to providing informative and enjoyable opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to discover, explore, be inspired by, and understand the natural environment. Each year over 140,000 people from school children through to retired adults experience the FSC at one of our UK wide network of learning locations. FSC Bursary provides support to individuals who are from disadvantaged backgrounds enabling them to take part in FSC curriculum focussed courses with their school class. This support, for individuals, is valuable as it can be a deciding factor on whether or not a whole class experiences fieldwork and out of classroom learning.
