The Future of Wheat/Bread

Conversations for farmers, millers, bakers in Lincolnshire

Wednesday 30th November – 9am-12:30pm LIAT, Riseholme Campus, Lincoln LN2 2LF

We’ve teamed up with Lincoln University, to host discussions among farmers, millers and bakers.

Our purpose is to gather people working at each stage of the grain and bread supply chain in Lincolnshire, to engage in conversations exploring the future of wheat/bread in a changing climate, including grain diversity, resilience, commodity and non-commodity grain systems and the role of technology.

We will also explore possibilities of developing a regional grain alliance or other future collaborations.

  • Introductions – please be prepared to share a 1 minute introduction to your work, ethos or interests in relation to grain
  • Exploring the future possibilities for wheat / bread in Lincolnshire 
  • Walking tour of research at LIAT
  • Discuss & identify opportunities to collaborate
  • Shared lunch
