Established in July 2019, The Future Food Systems Cooperative Research Centre partners leading Australian universities with industry and government bodies to deliver impactful research in the food systems domain. ‘Future food’ is our shorthand for categories of food that are differentiated by exceptional values for nutrition, environmental sustainability, safety and trust. Not only does Australia have capability to build global market share in these categories, we think consumers are increasingly demanding a future in which the food industry responds to these values. Taking a ‘whole of system’ approach is critical to optimising the environmental and community health outcomes of the food supply chain. The CRC consortium brings together leading experts and laboratories across the many disciplines needed to transform the sector – plant scientists, food scientists, planners, engineers, advanced manufacturing specialists, and medical scientists at the forefront of functional food in clinical settings.
