Professor Steve Yearley to present on the potential applications of nanotechnology in food.


On behalf of the Food Standards Agency, TNS-BMRB have been asked to conduct a study on consumer attitudes regarding the use of nanotechnology in food. There are a range of potential application areas they will be exploring, including its use for smart packaging, smart food and food fortification. As part of the debate, TNS_BMRB have invited Professor Steve Yearley to get involved, to act as a specialist discussing nanotechnology, its uses and wider implications. Steve will be giving a presentation on the potential applications of nanotechnology in food and/or issues around this at a workshop in Edinburgh on 14th December.
