UKTI visit NIAB East Malling Research

UKTI visit NIAB EMR

UKTI visit NIAB EMR

Locate in Kent hosted a visit by the UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) Agri-tech team to East Malling on 18 February. The visit was held days after the world centre of horticultural excellence had been acquired by Cambridge-based NIAB (the National Institute of Agricultural Botany), and formed into a new company ‘NIAB EMR’.

NIAB EMR has a strong pedigree in the UK and global fruit industries and through its commercial subsidiary EMS, offers companies growth opportunities through innovation in the market place. Increasingly, EMS is constructing consortia of national and international businesses to fund key research such as novel crops, irrigation, plant breeding and trialling. Several of the businesses interacting with NIAB EMR have also chosen to establish UK bases at or near the research centre – close to that source of innovation.

“We were delighted with the opportunity that Locate in Kent provided, commented Dr Roger Carline, EMS Managing Director. He continued, “We now have a better briefed team at UKTI, from their science and plant specialists through to the Agri-tech CEO, who are out engaging on the international platform and representing our business interests.”
