Our mission is to harness the power of data and digital technology to make Australia's agrifood system more profitable, sustainable and globally competitive.

about food agility

who we are

Food Agility CRC invests in world-leading research that is changing the way we produce, supply and consume food. Together with our partners, we create new data-driven technology for the agrifood industry using artificial intelligence, robotics, blockchain, sensors, advanced data analytics and more.

Our partnership network spans the Australian agrifood and agtech industries and includes eight leading universities. We are funded by our partners and by the Australian Government through its CRC Program.

What is a CRC?

unlocking the power of research

Food Agility Research Model

Australia is home to some of the world’s leading researchers in agrifood, technology and associated fields. We produce outstanding research and powerful new knowledge.

But that research doesn’t always translate into impact. Food Agility is forging new ways to do collaborative research so it unlocks the power in our innovation sector to deliver greater ROI and more impact for industry.
