Food Agility CRC is a $150million+ innovation hub that is creating new digital technologies and services to benefit the Australian agrifood industry.
Our partners include agrifood businesses, technology companies, research institutions and government organisations.
Together we represent a broad cross section of the food value system. We bring diverse perspectives to the table and approach challenges with a system-wide lens.
We are funded by the Australian Government under its Cooperative Research Centres Program and by our partners.
We broker innovative research, applying design-led and agile development methods and sharing data in trusted networks, to create new digital technology and services that address challenges in the agrifood industry.
We demonstrate the value of digital technology and are changing the way people work, helping to build a workforce for the future and increasing digital literacy across the agrifood sector.
We showcase innovation methods and approaches to sharing data that can help all Australian industries to meet future challenges and we lead the conversation about how to stimulate digital transformation in the agrifood sector.
