Dr Tim Finnigan
In order to ensure a sustainable future, we will need healthy new proteins with a low environmental impact, and Quorn is a great example of this. But in order to support and promote changes in dietary behaviour, we need great food and an evidence base that can remove consumer uncertainty through proof points that can withstand robust scrutiny. This is the focus of our research.

With over 30 years at Quorn, Tim has designed many of the products, processes and intellectual property held by the business, as well as advancing an ever deeper scientific understanding of Quorn mycoprotein and its contemporary role in assuring a sustainable food future.
