We are leading the way in sustainable food systems
The Monash Food Innovation Centre’s website previously included a reference to “development of the world’s first GI sugar” among its areas of operation. We wish to clarify that Associate Professor Kannar, now of the MFIC, previously contributed to the development of LoGiCane, the world’s first low GI sugar, when employed by Horizon Science. The MFIC was not involved in the development of LoGiCane. Associate Professor Kannar is now developing new technologies in conjunction with the MFIC.
We have access to key technologies in sustainable food systems

Building a globally competitive dairy and food industry
Graduate Research Interdisciplinary Program to ensure a globally competitive Dairy and Food Industry.
Working with world class researchers and post graduate PhD students, it helps the diary and food industry explore the next frontiers in the manufacturing of new products, efficient distribution, and sustainable resource use.
The Australian dairy industry annually contributes almost $3 billion in export earnings, with >20% export growth for a diverse range of dairy products. The Chinese market presents a significant opportunity with its rapidly expanding middle-class.
ARJRC in Future Dairy Manufacturing provided the impetus for a strong Australian alliance with China’s Soochow University under the leadership of Professor Xiao Dong Chen, and with financial support of the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST). Other Australian and Chinese partners in the ACJRC include Fonterra Australia, Gardiner Foundation, Bega, Food Innovation Centre, The University of Queensland, Devondale Murray Goulburn, China National Cereals, Oils and Foodstuffs Corporation (COFCO) and Mengniu Dairy.
“At Lion Dairy & Drinks, we are always on the lookout for great innovations backed by science and technology. Through our interactions with the Monash Food Innovation Centre team and the collaborative exploration of our strategic opportunities, we have co created a couple of research projects to commercialise some of Monash best science discoveries in our branded portfolio. We look forward to many more as we continue the exploration.”
Greg Holden, Lion Dairy and Drinks
“Monash University Researchers worked with us to increase the shelf life of our products and we can now access new export markets. The team helped us apply for an Innovation Connections grant and even visited our factory to develop a solution that was easy for our production team. We now have more options to sell our products.”
“Utilising the advanced analytical platform at Monash University, Hawkins Watts has developed a quality system that detects subtle variations in the batch to batch variations in some of our naturally sourced ingredients. These variations can result in undesired quality defects in our clients’ end products. This has enabled us to further match our products to our clients’ intended uses, improving our overall service offering.”
Ian Robinson, Hawkins Watts
