World class innovative research, training and technology transfer specializing in food safety, value-added processing and value-added bio-refining of food and industrial products.

Agri-Food Discovery Place offers industrial partners the unique opportunity to collaborate closely and leverage the expertise of world class researchers in a state-of-the-art facility where research can be conducted throughout the entire chain of meat processing and handling as well as every aspect of bio-refining.

Agri-Food Discovery Place is home to two unique, state-of-the-art research facilities, specializing in crops utilization and meat safety.

Crops research allows pilot-scale processing of agri-food and agri-industrial products and development of novel technologies through separation, conversion and application technologies all under one roof.

Meat research focuses on the different approaches to control pathogens during the processing, packaging and storage of meat products and is unique in its ability to work with pathogens in a small scale pilot processing environment.
