We connect UQ’s agri-food science expertise with Queensland industry

The UQ Agri-Food Innovation Alliance links research and education in agri-food science with business.

Working with South-East Queensland food producers, we aim to transform innovation and ideas into sustainable production methods, commercially viable foods and virtual supply chains.

Our project teams of UQ researchers and industry collaborators have wide-ranging agribusiness expertise across broadacre cropping, winter chilled fruit, viticulture, sub-tropical horticulture, dairy, beef and poultry farms, and seafood.
