Narrator: Consumer demand for healthy, convenient, new and safe food products is rising and market growth in the Asian region is booming.
More than ever manufacturing innovation is critical for the Australian food industry to capture these opportunities and be globally competitive.

At our Food Innovation Centre we work with the food and beverage manufacturing industry to meet these opportunities and add value to their business.

We help companies innovate by creating next generation value added food products and ingredients, improving operating efficiencies, licensing ready to go technologies, making industry connections and adopting and developing new technologies and applications for safer, fresher, healthier and sustainably produced foods and more.
