We have great pleasure in announcing this year’s George Scott Robertson Memorial Lecture, to be held on Wednesday 6th November 2019 from 5.30pm at Riddel Hall. We are honoured to welcome Lord Mark Price, a former Managing Director of supermarket Waitrose and previously a Minister in both David Cameron’s and Theresa May’s Conservative governments, as our Keynote speaker.


The memorial lecture is jointly hosted by the Institute for Global Food Security (IGFS) at Queen’s University; the Agri Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI); the Ulster Farmers Union (UFU) and the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA). The event commemorates the achievements of Dr George Scott Robertson who played a key role in promoting agricultural progress in Northern Ireland in the earlier half of the 20th century.


In a lecture entitled UK Food Systems: Adapting to Change Lord Price will reflect on a long career in the food industry and outline his thoughts for the future; particularly the changing regulatory and economic landscape and the likely effect on British food producers, processors and retailers.


All guests are invited to enjoy a welcome reception from 5.30pm
