Arrell Food Institute
Their vision is to transform global food systems, and elevate Canada’s place within the global food economy. They will build on Guelph’s world-class strengths in all aspects of food in order to become the world leader in food and agricultural innovation.
Through research they will create the tools needed to produce enough food for the growing human population, while sustaining the ecosystems on which they depend for life. It is not the amount of food they produce, but the way they produce food that will be a defining challenge of the next century. Using the tools of the 21st century, they will help farmers produce more food on less land, with fewer inputs. Only by fully understanding the ecosystems on which they depend for food will they solve this century’s great global challenge: to protect the environment while safely feeding the world’s rising population.
The Arrell Food Institute at the University of Guelph leads as a portal for food expertise, through industry extension and training. These programs drive understanding, innovation and action on local and global food issues with its partners. By facilitating industry and research connections, they foster economic growth, and assist in the public benefit from research discoveries.See more
