Food industry findings

Food industry findings

  • Processors are in need of more product launch and market access support from the Centres.

  • Looking for expertise throughout the entire commercialization process.

  • Medium and large companies looking for partners to assist them with new technology advancement.

  • New product runs and experimentation could be handled more cost effectively at a food Centre rather than interrupting processing schedules.


Foodtech objectives

FOODTECH Objectives

  • Establish a national chain of collaborative “Centres of Technical Expertise” (CTEs) that link directly to the strategic needs of the industry while supporting government innovation and prosperity initiatives.

  • Optimize investment in capabilities and capacities in order to serve the innovation and commercialization needs of the industry.


Foodtech objectives1

FOODTECH Objectives

  • Become the globally recognized “technology commercialization provider of choice” and portal for industry to develop value-added products through partnerships, quality service and an understanding of industry needs and market opportunities.

  • Be the leading advocate for innovation, emerging technologies, commercialization best practices, and technology transfer investment in food and bio-products.


Enabling commercialization

Enabling Commercialization

FOODTECH members are involved in innovation and commercialization in the following ways:

  • Proactively sourcing technologies and linking them with industry

  • Progressing technology through applied research to product launch

  • Educating and informing industry of technologies, their applications and market opportunities

  • Providing technical assistance and business support throughout the development and launch phases.

Science clusters

Science Clusters – Seeding the establishment of science groups, not adding to AAFC’s capacity, but adding to the critical masses of focused capacity in partnerships 

FOODTECH MEMBERS offer:

- Science in support of food processing and technology

- Wide array of partnerships with research and industry organizations within each Centre, and externally with FOODTECH.
