One of the four Agritech Centres, funded by Innovate UK, Agri-EPI is an ecosystem of tech innovators, engineering excellence, business thinkers, and food and farming experts. We are accelerating the adoption of precision agriculture and engineering technologies to boost productivity across the whole agri-food chain. Are you an international agri-tech business looking to establish a UK base?
With our three innovation hubs, we welcome international companies of all sizes with an international landing pad where we offer access to state-of-the-art capabilities and support to help businesses reach their full potential.
Access our wider agri ecosystem
Collaborate and work alongside agri innovators
Join our growing collaborative network of food producers, processors and retailers across the UK with access to industry leading companies, experts and cutting-edge facilities, funding alerts, exclusive events, demonstrations, business incubation and international reach.
As the leading agri-tech enabler, our various UK sites allow new R&D and commercial projects to be trialled, delivering the scientific validation and commercial evaluation required to roll out profitable on-farm technology. We are here to support our fast-growing food science and agri-tech sector with soil health and crop technology solutions; we house aquaculture test facilities and food laboratories.
We deliver world-class livestock and dairy research and development facilities, including youngstock research, robotics and adaptable housing development. Our innovative centres of excellence in precision agriculture are complimented with a UK-wide network of farms that provide a wealth of field and commercial trial opportunities. Agri-EPI works with a number of arable and organic farms, where new soil and crop technologies and ideas can be developed and trialled in commercial farming settings.
Whether you’re an SME, international company or UK-based agri-tech company, we would love to show you around!
