Victoria Foster

Head of the British Beet Research Organisation (BBRO)

Vicky joined the BBRO in 2018, where she took up the position of Head of BBRO. During her time at BBRO she has further developed the team, now with a stronger focus on KE, to ensure that practical science drives change on-farm. The skills and expertise within the team continue to grow from strength to strength under Vicky’s leadership.

Prior to joining BBRO, Vicky spent 15 years with the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) where she worked across all six AHDB sectors to drive further change to bring the sectors into more alignment over commissioning new research and KE activities and reduce duplication, thus, providing more cost benefit for levy payers. Her former years specialised in managing the research programme for the cereals and oilseeds sector with HGCA as it was at the time.

Vicky’s future agriculture career was firmly cemented at Rothamsted Research in the late 1990’s where she undertook a PhD in cereal pathology. Working in one of the oldest and most renowned agricultural research organisations in the world was both inspiring and humbling and this drover her passion for science that could make a difference on farm and not just sit on a shelf in a library!
