Contact us – we’ll be delighted to speak to you

We are the UK’s Centre for Innovation Excellence in Livestock, a leading farm animal research alliance, helping to bring new technologies and processes to livestock food production within the UK and worldwide.

Improving UK food systems and sustainability

Over and above working alongside our research partners, our Members span the food supply chain, including producers, processors, retailers, veterinary health, feed companies and SME innovators, all with an interest in R&D and improving UK food systems.

Our reach also extends across the UK Government, providing a voice to ensure important industry issues are addressed, championing new ideas, and providing our Members with unparalleled opportunities to partner in projects.
