• £50m investment in two Agri-food Centres of Excellence.
  • Malton Agri-food Park secured Food Enterprize Zone.
  • £10m Bioeconomy Growth Fund Launched.

Moving towards a higher value economy means maximising our area’s economic strengths. Our assets are around agri-food, biorenewables and bioscience. These are key UK growth sectors which we hope to lead on globally.

While facing the challenges of limited natural resources, a growing population and climate change, the bioeconomy provides a future foundation for global opportunities and a huge market opportunity here.

Our approach combines maximising current market opportunities, while developing low carbon products and services to sustain our future economy.
