CHAP hosts Tesco Industry Day
Today CHAP hosted the Tesco TSFG Brassica suppliers’ group day. We were delighted to welcome the Tesco team and some of their suppliers to Sand Hutton to explore ways we can work together. The aim of the day was to give the group a better understanding of the role of CHAP and how they can access our capabilities. Chris Danks from KTN gave them a very thorough introduction to the UK funding landscape. This was followed by presentations from Rob Simmons on the Cranfield Brassica Yield forecasting model, Rachel Benstead talked them through the E-Flows Mesocosm and Phill Davies and Adam Omerod, once again, did an impressive job of setting up a mobile demonstration of STC’s LED lighting on basil. The last couple of hours of the day was an open discussion on the challenges facing the sustainability of brassica production, which led to a number of potential projects being identified, using several CHAP assets, for a variety of potential funding routes and consortiums.
