The historic town of Bedford benefits from a robust and diverse economy. Historically renowned for its wool and lace manufacture during the 15th century; which was still a strong element of Bedford’s economy up until the early 1900s. Bedford has successfully diversified and updated its traditional sectors, as well as embraced new and innovative industries, to sustain a growing economy and reap the benefits of its prosperous business community.
Nearly 5,500 businesses employing some 80,000 people
Key industries such as food processing and agriculture play a huge part in Bedford, with major companies and innovative start-ups, such as micro-breweries and local food processing firms all benefiting from Bedfordshire’s abundant farmland.
Supporting this industry is Colworth Science Park. Based in the grounds of an 18th century mansion and developed as a research centre in 1947. Colworth has been at the forefront of industrial research for 70 years, and established as one of the most important assets in Food and Drink Research and Development, including plant science, cell and molecular biology, health psychology, social science, engineering, physical sciences, and environmental and human health sciences.
As these industries continue to grow, it remains vitally important that management and staff are protected and educated in current HSE first aid industry standards and health and safety requirements.
