What We Do
Launched in February 2014 with three years’ core funding from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, the Food Research Collaboration (FRC) was founded by food academic and campaigner Professor Tim Lang, who recognised the value of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and academics collectively generating and sharing the evidence needed to underpin the transition to a sustainable, healthy and fair food system.
The FRC is based at the Centre for Food Policy at City, University of London and shares the Centre’s vision of achieving more integrated and inclusive UK policy to improve the wellbeing of people and the planet. We do this by bringing together academics across disciplines and Civil Society Organisations across sectors to produce, share and use the evidence-based knowledge needed by UK policy makers and campaigners.

Produce policy recommendations for a more integrated approach to some of the key challenges and opportunities for the food system raised by Britain’s exit from the European Union.
