About Agra CEAS

Agra CEAS Consulting is a joint venture between Imperial College London and Informa Plc, and was established at the Bureau Européen de Recherches in Brussels in 1973 and at Imperial College London in Wye in 1986.

Our unique shareholding structure and the location of our offices provide us with a powerful combination of Agra CEAS Consulting itself, with its core group of professional consultants and dedicated support staff, and three active links into the:

  • Academic resources of Imperial College London.  Consistently rated amongst the world's best universities, Imperial College London is a science-based institution with a reputation for excellence in teaching and research.  Agra CEAS is linked to Imperial College through Imperial Consultants who handle the provision of consultancy expertise using College staff.
  • Commercial strengths of Informa.  Informa provides high value business information on food, agriculture, soft commodities, fisheries and seafood through, amongst other platforms, www.agra-net.com.  Informa Economics, the division with which we link, is a world leader in broad-based agricultural and commodity/product market research, analysis, evaluation and consulting.
  • EU policy-making environment through our Brussels operation situated close to the European Institutions. 

These unique linkages enhance our ability to provide specialist advice and analysis by providing us with an approach that combines the in-depth knowledge and experience that we have acquired since the company was formed, with the rigour of an academic establishment operating within a commercial environment.
