For decades CASNR researchers have focused their scientific efforts on the systematic development and evaluation of production, processing, and preparation methods of food products to achieve a safer, higher quality and more nutritious food supply, and to take the information to the end-user. They’re working on developing pre-harvest, harvest, and post-harvest strategies and technologies to maintain a safe, high-quality and affordable food supply, while maintaining producer profitability. Along the way they’re working on new food products and adding value to existing products, as well as determining consumer perceptions and attitudes toward food innovations and identifying techniques to positively influence acceptance.
