University of Manitoba

A significant portion of the research conducted in the Faculty of Agricultural and Foods Sciences is directly contributing towards Manitoba’s vision of being North America’s protein supplier of choice.
Research initiatives, from breeding to processing and everything in between (production, research, product development, environmental impact, etc.) are underway at the University of Manitoba.
Specifically, the university’s research efforts focus on breeding programs to enhance the quality of protein crops, and developing sustainable protein crop and livestock production systems that reduce environmental impacts and improve the quality of the crop, meat and milk produced.

Research programs also focus on enhanced processing technologies to develop functional and nutritious protein-rich foods and extracts, their feasibility for the food market and their role in improving consumer health.
Additionally, the university is increasingly incorporating public trust as a key component within their crop and livestock production and processing initiatives.
