What else are we working on?
We have partnered with The University of Glasgow School of Veterinary Medicine on a four-year research and innovation project, supporting post-graduate research in anti-microbial resistance (AMR), specific to the dairy sector in Scotland.
Through a mix of questionnaires, direct farmer engagement opportunities and stakeholder project work, this research is aimed to significantly contribute to public and industry understanding on AMR. With farmers as the focus of this research programme, we want to determine attitudes towards the use of antibiotics and support innovative ways to reduce their use.
Lidl GB is part of the Food Industry Initiative on Antimicrobials (FIIA) which has the stated vision of ‘Retailers, manufacturers, processors and food service companies coming together to promote and support responsible antimicrobial use and action on antimicrobial resistance'. The intention of this initiative is to support and engage with existing industry groups working in this area, ensuring work is aligned, avoiding duplication of effort and it has 3 key working groups on Responsible Use, Data and Research & Development.
