The transformative power of KTP can be used in all sectors of the UK economy – including in food production.

In this podcast interview with Food Manufacture magazine, we hear about how the highly successful, Innovate UK-funded KTP collaboration between Yorkshire-based cracker manufacturer, Rakusen’s, and the University of Bradford helped introduce Industry 4 technology to transform production efficiencies at the iconic food  company.

More about this KTP project – a Finalist in the Engineering Excellence category of the KTP Best of the Best Awards 2020 – is here.

Funding competitions for KTP are open throughout the year. More information on KTP and how to apply is here.
