Imagine a future in which Australia value-adds a far larger proportion of its agricultural production before export – a future in which thriving regional and peri-urban centres lead the world in applying advanced food manufacturing, logistics and sustainability technology to the streamlined supply of healthy, trusted, customised products.

The Future Food Systems Cooperative Research Centre, a national consortium of growers and manufacturers, start-ups, industry bodies, government agencies and prestigious research institutions, is working to help make all this a reality for Australia.

From innovation in high-tech, high-yield indoor cropping to cutting-edge precision nutrition products to specialised food industry clusters that realise the unique potential of our agrifood regions, CRC research is helping to transform the way Australia produces, adds value to and delivers food worldwide, playing a significant role in achieving the federal government’s goal of near-doubling Australia’s agricultural-sector revenue by 2030.
