Research from the University Future food systems: There can be little doubt that with a rapidly growing global population, the basic issue of food provision and the prevalence of high levels of malnutrition is one of the grand challenges of the age. Food quality is also one of the keys to the wider problem of health maintenance in an increasingly ageing population. As a major food exporting nation, New Zealand is uniquely placed to advance the design of new health-enhancing foods, helping prevent disease and to improve the quality of life. The impact of innovation in the food sector on our export-driven economy stands to be dramatic. Massey is a world leader in agrifood research and is working at the smart interface between food science and nutrition to address food security issues as well as to enhance health and well-being. Our expertise in food innovation spans the disciplines of agriculture, horticulture and biosecurity; packaging, refrigeration, nutritional balance and food safety; food technology and engineering; design, branding and marketing. Ensuring the environmental sustainability of food supply underpins all Massey research activity. Massey researchers are involved in research which covers the spectrum from ‘gate to plate’ and provides an intellectual continuum around the issues of sustainable food production, food quality and food security. This coupled with acknowledged capability in developing the wider agri-food economy makes Massey one of the global leaders in food systems research.
