Growing population in UK surge the demand for food across the nation. Editing plant genomes to feed a growing population is innovative technology in the agriculture industry. The potential of gene editing to address the growing demand for food has contributed to the growth of CRISPR in the agriculture market in UK. New companies are capitalizing on technology to improve crop production and quality. For instance, Tropic Biosciences (based in Norwich, UK) is using gene-editing technology including CRISPR to optimize and improve crop production. The company used gene-editing techniques for developing disease-resistant bananas and decaffeinated coffee.

Recently, in March 2019, the company has launched a breakthrough GEiGS platform to improve crop protection by combining gene editing and RNAi technologies. The research performed in such companies is supported by external funds that allow such new market players to expand their technologies. For instance, Tropic Biosciences has raised $10 million in Series A funding from a global group of Ag and biotech investors. The oversubscribed round was led by agrifood tech venture funds PontifaxAgTech and Five Seasons Ventures. New York-based tech VC Tekfen Ventures, Swiss VC Emerald Technology Ventures, and Chinese agrifood accelerator Bits x Bites also participated in the round among others.

Due to the growing demand for chicken, the farmers in UK are increasing the production every year. With the increasing production, the prevalence of diseases among chickens is also growing in the country. Poultry animals are facing serious infections such as septicemia, gastroenteritis, respiratory diseases, and mycoplasma infections including the highly infectious Mycoplasma Galliseptum (Gs) and other infectious diseases. Gene-editing technology can allow farmers to protect their animals from these diseases. Due to the growing awareness of poultry science among farmers and the active efforts of the government to flourish healthy production of food from poultries, the country is actively engaged in gene editing research for farm animals. For instance, the Roslin Institute at the University of Edinburgh in collaboration with the Institute Strategic Programme (ISP) used CRISPR to produce pigs that are potentially resistant to Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS).
