We were lucky to attend Food Industry Innovation event hosted by Innovate UK in Manchester last week. Among other exciting food products like baobab drinks, amazing kambucha drink and spicy sugar free drinks, we met guys who started first saffron farm in UK, The Cheshire Saffron Company. We will see if we can use our technology helping them extracting saffron flavour from trimmings.

When we first contacted Innovate UK to get an advice on potential funding for our project they gave us contacts of the Knowledge Transfer Network. KTN links new ideas and opportunities with expertise, markets and finance through their network of businesses, universities, funders and investors. The very next week we were on a long phone call with KTN discussing funding and networking opportunities for an innovation start-up both in UK and EU. We found this relationship extremely fruitful and pivotal on our journey to what we hope will be a successful innovation.
