The Food and Environment Research Agency (FERA)

The Food and Environment Research Agency's over arching purpose is to support and develop a sustainable food chain, a healthy natural environment, and to protect the global community from biological and chemical risks.

Our role within that is to provide robust evidence, rigorous analysis and professional advice to Government, international organisations and the private sector.

Climate change, food security and environmental sustainability are presenting the UK and indeed all other countries around the world, with significant, complex and often interrelated challenges. The Food and Environment Research Agency plays a vital role, increasingly on a world stage, in anticipating the issues, assessing the risks and gathering the evidence to guide policy response.

To meet these challenges The Food and Environment Research Agency brings together expertise in

policy issues - particularly relating to seed, plant and bee health
inspection services necessary to ensure protection for seeds, crops and horticulture
multi disciplinary science to rapidly diagnose threats, evaluate risk and inform policy in food and environmental areas
responding to and recovering from unforeseen or emergency situations

Fera has over 7,500 customers and 1000 collaboration partners spread over some 102 countries. This stakeholder base is made up from Government, academia, industry and commerce and, whilst a significant proportion of Fera's work is UK based, it has global reach across the EU, wider Europe, and five of the other six continents, the exception being Antarctica.
