Canadian Food Processing Innovation and Prosperity Cluster

The Canadian Food Processing Innovation and Prosperity Cluster is driving innovation in the food and beverage processing industry across Canada. The cluster addresses several cross-cutting themes including advancing health and wellness attributes to take advantage of that burgeoning market opportunity; enhancing food safety especially to take advantage of export opportunities; adding value to agricultural inputs to create jobs and prosperity in Canada; and enhancing quality in line with market requirements.

The Agricultural Adaptation Council provides administrative support to the Cluster.

This investment is made through the Industry-led Research and Development stream of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s AgriInnovation Program, a five-year, up to $698-million initiative under Growing Forward 2.


The Canadian Food Innovators (CFI) are accepting applications for consideration in their next Cluster. Applications are due September 22, 2017, 4 pm Central Daylight Time. Applications are available on the CFI website.
