The Upfield Food Science Centre is a shining example of sustainability

On completion, the state-of-the-art Upfield Food Science Centre located in Wageningen – a world-class location for food innovation — will be BREEAM certified and comply with the highest standards for sustainability. BREEAM is an environmental standard which outlines a methodology to translate the environmental impact of a building into measurable values. In line with our vision for “A Better Plant-Based Future”, Upfield has chosen to use this evidence-based methodology as a basis for the design of the Upfield Food Science Centre with the aim of reducing the building’s environmental footprint. BREEAM credits, which are awarded for the building itself as well as the internal laboratories, kitchens and communal areas, will allow Upfield teams to work in a creative, cutting-edge and comfortable space, making optimum use of the Wageningen Food science and technology ecosystem, driving positive change in people’s health and our planet’s sustainability through the development of delicious plant-based foods that consumers love.
