Experts from across the wheat supply chain, including plant breeding, farming, milling and baking, will gather at the Campden BRI seminar to highlight challenges and opportunities for the long-term viability of wheat-based food production.
The event, taking place on 11 April, will focus on the needs of various sectors of the industry, and the issues that growers face in meeting those needs.
A spokesperson for Campden BRI explained the significance of hosting the event: "Climate change and sustainability issues are challenging our food supply now more than at any time in the past. Increasingly unpredictable growing seasons could affect the yield and quality of the global wheat crop.
"At the same time, the rising cost and environmental impact of nitrogen-based fertilisers will put pressure on growers to apply less nitrogen to wheat crops, reducing the potential to achieve the high grain protein content required for milling quality in growing regions such as the British Isles and Northern Europe."
Campden BRI provides technical, legislative and scientific support and research to the food and drinks industry worldwide.
It offers a comprehensive farm-to-fork range of services covering agri-food production, analysis and testing, processing and manufacturing, safety, training and technical information services.
