Using food technology for business

The Health and Food Sciences Precinct's food technology area includes a modern food science laboratory next to the food pilot plant.

Food technologists at the plant study the formulation, processing, storage, packaging and functionality of processed foods under the guidance of Australian industry and government regulations.
