Food and Bioproducts Development

The innovative nature of Saskatchewan's research community has led to Saskatchewan being recognized as the Canadian leader in agricultural biotechnology. The world is shifting its reliance from a non-renewable or petroleum based economy to a renewable bioeconomy. Saskatchewan is escalating its efforts and investments in science and technology for the new bioeconomy. The investments will expand agriculture beyond traditional food and feed to bio-based industrial and consumer products made from renewable feedstocks.

The work conducted by the research chairs in this area lays a foundation for the creation of new markets and additional demand for crops. The research may lead to realization of significant value-added potential for primary commodity crops produced in Saskatchewan.

The two SRP Chairs in the Food and Bioproducts Development theme are:
