Advanced Material Development winning new fans with leading-edge nanotech research


is one of a consortium of 11 UK companies to have won government funding to develop technology to reduce waste and build consumer confidence in ‘farm-to-fork’ food supply chains.

The SecQuAL project, which is short for Secure Quality Assured Logistics for Digital Food Ecosystems, aims to digitally enable the food ecosystem with ‘smart labels’ to improve food safety, reduce waste and strengthen consumer confidence in the food they purchase and consume.

Other companies in the consortium include Lloyd’s Register, IBM, () and the Food Standards Agency.

AMD said it will apply its knowledge of next-generation nanomaterials science to the development of smart, sustainable packaging and tracking solutions, having for example won commercial contracts using its graphene-based conductive ink technology to make more sustainable tagging systems for the retail packaging industry.
