Uniquely Australian

Identifying and validating opportunities for elite products from foods and ingredients that can only have come from Australia 

Our research includes:

  • Provenance (region of origin) and regional attributes
  • Functional food/feed/nutraceutical ingredients with enhanced nutritional and phytochemical profiles from specialty crops (Australian native plant foods) and industry co/by-products
  • Value chain value-addition through processing and preservation
  • Sensory properties, linked to consumer marketing and branding
  • Innovative packaging solutions and safe use of novel plant foods
