Milan Expo

Read about our involvement in Expo Milano 2015 a global food security event hosted in Milan, Italy, from 1 May to 31 October, 2015

Over the six-month period, the expo enabled more than 140 participating countries to exchange ideas on how to guarantee healthy, safe and sufficient food for everyone for the future, while respecting the planet and its equilibrium.

The Met Office took part in the GREAT week Agri-tech in the UK Pavilion. The Pavilion was a showcase of British innovation, creativity and global leadership in Agricultural Technology (Agri-tech). The UK's participation theme was Grown in Britain & Northern Ireland, led by UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) with support from seven HM Government departments.

At the time of the event, there were just 35 crop cycles before 2050 and a population of 9 billion, the Agri-tech sector needed to press forward with novel approaches, game changing technology, and innovative and sustainable solutions to feed the planet.

Working closely with partners from across the world, we are uniquely positioned to bring science, industry and our world leading weather and climate services together to develop food supply and security advice across the short, medium and long-term.
