Beyond Food

beyond food
We nurture and develop capability in protein and materials science, engineering and biotechnology. This enables development of value added bio-based products from pastoral agriculture bioresources. These products maximise the utilisation of resources and deliver verified attributes to the consumer, while exemplifying environmental, social and cultural expectations.

We are NZ leading in pastoral agriculture co-products and proteomics of bio-based products.  We are world class in fibre science, micro-analysis of keratin materials and protein modification chemistry of bio-based products.

Our Beyond Food Centre of Excellence specialises in:

  • Protein & Metabolites
  • Bioproduct & Fibre Technology
  • Animal Biotech
