The Richard Lawes Foundation
The Richard Lawes Foundation was created as a result of the success of the businesses of Volac and Pritchitt Foods. The innovation of these companies generated profits by identifying undervalued raw materials and converting them into valuable end products using food science.
The Foundation’s trustees would like to support Nuffield scholars on a general basis.
We would be particularly interested in scholars who would like to work on a project which involves some of the following characteristics:
1 Market / consumer facing interest
2 Technical innovation
3 Food and health
4 Future sustainability
5 Crop technology
Trustees have backgrounds in crop science, food processing, retail and food service marketing and general business management. We would be keen to help scholars develop their skills in any of these areas.
