Centre for Agricultural Sustainable Innovation (CASI)


The Mercury Programme (Agri Tech) Logo

The Centre for Agriculture Sustainable Innovation (CASI) will facilitate collaboration between businesses in the agriculture industry and promote farm-based sustainable innovation, supporting an inclusive and green economy through the demonstration of innovation, commercialisation, iconic new food and drink products and world-leading quality control.

Building on Angus’s historical reputation in agricultural innovation, the CASI headquarters will be located at The Mart in Forfar, Angus, a location synonymous with farming in the North East. A place to bring international inspectors to showcase the very best of produce that Angus and the wider Tay Cities Region has to offer, the CASI HQ will create a place for learning and sharing of innovations amongst the farming community in a way that, until now, has not been facilitated.

The CASI will initially drive forward the development of four agricultural technology enterprises including:

  • A neutral spirit still
  • Precision farming facilities
  • Innovation farm
  • Crop quality centre
