A number of energy scenarios will also be explored, considering different configurations of food supply chains, UK energy prices and policy decisions. Another research theme will investigate technologies for reducing energy use at all stages of the chain; this can be by optimisation of resource use, or by lowering the energy needs of individual food-manufacturing processes from thermal treatment and pasteurisation, to mixing, baking, drying, cooling and freezing. <br /><br />Emerging and new technologies will also be considered. A third strand of the research will consider both corporate and individual consumer behaviour alongside other factors such as changing demographics and increasing awareness of sustainable living on food consumption trends and how these affect food chain structure and energy use. As well as research activities the Centre will engage in an extensive programme of network and people-based activities to engage the wider national and international research community and industry, particularly SMEs.
