Visit by Sir Jonathon Porritt

Great honour to host Sir Jonathon Porritt, CBE this morning at the Crops For the Future headquarters.  Sir Jonathon Porritt is a leading British environmentalist and an environmental adviser to many bodies and individuals, including Prince Charles. He is the Founder Director of Forum for the Future - an independent non-profit working with business, government (including Sime Darby, Unilever, Tesco) to solve sustainability challenges. 

CFF presented our work on underutilised crops - from our postgraduate training on agricultural diversification, to nutritional profiling of our food and sustainable aquaculture feed using insect meal - which received positive comments. He also had a chance to visit our Food Development Lab, Controlled Environment chambers and Field Research Centre.
