Food and Environment Research Agency. United Kingdom.

FERA'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 with significant, complex and often interrelated challenges. FERA plays a vital role in anticipating the issues, assessing the risks and gathering the evidence to guide policy response.
