The Food Agility CRC proposal has been submitted.

By deadline we had raised over $150m in cash and in-kind commitments. We are seeking funding of $50m from the CRC programme over 10 years (2017 – 2027). 

We have 54 strongly engaged participants – including:
11 food industry companies
15 technology companies
7 service providers
7 research institutions
6 research development corporations and rural research organisations
3 agriculture industry associations and
5 state government departments of agriculture - which may be a first!

This has been a HUGE team effort. So many to thank and so many extraordinary commitments to the cause of a digitally connected food world.
 
Thank you everyone for your ongoing support and efforts.
