On Tuesdays and Thursday during Lunchbox (2nd , 4th ,9th & 11th August) IFR manned a booth from 12:00-14:00, fielding questions from the public on all things food. So whether you want to know about the recent E. coli outbreak, the latest dietary fads, newspaper headlines about superfoods, or the healthiest way to cook your veg then this was a great chance to hear from some of the world’s leading food researchers.

Although they won’t be able to give personalised medical advice, the scientists tackled any questions related to food, and fuller answers are now available on the IFR website.

LunchBox is returning for the fifth year, providing a feast of street theatre as the perfect entertainment to accompany your lunch break during the summer. And now, with IFR’s scientists help, you can really find out what is in your lunch.
