Agricultural Research: Leading the Way in Food Safety, Quality and Nutrition

Alternative Formats

Scientists at the Guelph Research and Development Centre (GRDC) work with industry and other partners to improve food safety, quality and nutrition. It is part of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s (AAFC) extensive network of research centres across the country that keep Canadian food among the best in the world.

The GRDC specializes in finding innovative ways to control food contamination risks on farms and in food processing factories. The Centre also focuses on the potential for developing novel functional foods (foods that offer nutritional and therapeutic benefits).

It is home to a unique pilot-scale food processing facility – the most modern one of its kind in Canada – which helps scientists test-drive the latest food processing technologies.

The GRDC works collaboratively with industry, farm organizations, the University of Guelph and other universities and research organizations in Canada and abroad.
