Agents of change: Transforming the food industry for Australia, Asia and beyond (2013–2018)

Abstract:
Over the next decades, the Australian food industry faces unprecedented challenges to create and market healthier foods and to respond to a surging demand from Asia¿s expanding markets - both within a resourceconstrained world. The Training Centre will graduate at least 13 innovation scientists within a matrix structure encompassing health and nutrition, consumer and sensory science, agrifood value chains and business leadership. They will provide some of the transformative input into the food industry necessary to address the multiple opportunities of a demand driven paradigm for high-end foods and ingredients that are low in riskassociated nutrients, which fulfill sustainability requirements, for markets in Australia, Asia and beyond.
