Transferring knowledge to the Food & Drink sector
The Food Technology Centre (FTC) has been established since 1999 and
plays a key role in transferring knowledge to the food industry in
Wales and across the UK.
Working closely with food businesses in order to assist them in
gaining a competitive advantage, the FTC has dedicated resources which
