The Monash Food Innovation Centre is proud to be part of this important innovation in addressing food waste.

Researchers from the Monash University’s School of Chemistry in an international collaboration with IITB (India) are working with the Food Innovation Centre, industry and farmers to help them transform food waste into profits – while simultaneously improving their business model.
With more than $5.4 billion worth of food being dumped annually in Victoria alone, Monash is using a holistic approach to ‘biomass valorisation’ to help industry extract high value components such as the antioxidants, oils, pectin and protein from food disposal – ranging from mango, pomegranate and pineapple skin, to spent coffee grounds and almond ash.
