Advancing food fermentation
This research programme looks to discover new - and non-GMO - microbes for food fermentation. We validate these microbes for commercial application using our state-of-the-art high throughput technologies.
We are developing high quality fermented dairy products that can meet the expectation and preferences of the target export markets, particularly the Chinese market.
We have developed an accelerated evolution protocol for microbes used for food fermentation; this includes a range of high throughput assays to facilitate the selection and enhancement of microbes to improve the flavours and textures of fermented foods.
