The food industry is important for the Australian economy with 15% of the Australian workforce being involved in food production and food exports of $30.5 billion annually. The National Food Plan White Paper states: “Our vision for Australia’s food system is a sustainable, globally competitive, resilient food supply supporting access to nutritious and affordable food”. To make this a reality, i.e, to grow Australia’s food industry and to increase Australia’s food exports, safe, sustainable, and cost-effective food supply chains will be vital.
The ARC Training Centre for Food and Beverage Supply Chain Optimisation will train the next generation of multidisciplinary researchers capable of designing, building, and managing these supply chains. The University of Newcastle is establishing this centre in partnership the University of Sydney, CSIRO and several industry partners.
