About Us

Our mission is to unlock the power of data, digital and research to create a sustainable food future for producers, consumers and communities.

about food agility

who we are

Food Agility is a $150m Cooperative Research Centre. We make research collaborations easy and impactful. We broker partnerships between agrifood, technology and research organisations. Together we do great research that creates scalable, data-driven digital solutions for the Australian agrifood industry.

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

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.
