Food Innovation

Waite Plant Accelerator

Driving the next wave of innovation in the food sector

Food production and processing is going through its biggest transformation since the industrial revolution.

New technologies and innovations that exploit robotics, machine learning, computer vision, lasers, genomics, glycomics, proteomics, supply chain analysis and customer behavioural understanding are further improving the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of food production, processing and distribution.

The University of Adelaide, through its research and education, is leading thought for food to drive the next wave of innovation and training for the food sector.

Featured projects

Read how our research is addressing social, environmental and economic megatrends that will have a major impact on global food production and supply over the coming decades.

Key research areas

Our research can be categorised into actions that occur at the farming stages (pre-farm gate) and actions that occur after the product leaves the farm (post-farm gate).
