Supply chain integrity desirability analysis

This project will explore the supply chains and relationships that exist between Australian processors/exporters and the final retail customer. The research focuses on the proposition that there is a middle market where consumers are still prepared to pay a slightly higher price for enhanced integrity. Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) hypothesizes that such segments exist and technological solutions to providing information and assurances may add value to these mid-tier segments.

Demonstration of safety, palatability, and efficacy of novel, sugarcane-derived feed ingredients in ruminants

Bagasse is the pulpy fibrous material that remains after sugarcane is crushed to extract its juice. The SRA has invested in new technologies to transform it into a nutritious animal feed ingredient, and this project will trial bagasse-derived fibre as a sheep feed and model potential production and markets.

Overcoming propagule supply bottlenecks for seaweed production

Asparagopsis taxiformis, a red seaweed, seems to be the most effective species of macroalgae to reduce methane production in Australian livestock. To support the Australian livestock sector to reduce its emissions footprint by adding it to animal feed, there is an urgent need and significant commercial incentive to rapidly develop next-generation ways to propagate, farm and process Asparagopsis taxiformis at scale. This project will develop micropropagation tools for seaweed farming. By using plant tissue in small amounts, micropropagation can produce large numbers of disease-free plants in a short period, using small spaces.

Project B Green

This project seeks to prove the science and economics of a proposed biorefinery in the Burdekin sugarcane region of Australia, that would convert sugarcane juice to glycols and biomass to energy (syngas and hydrogen). Global research into biorefineries has escalated in recent years, as businesses transition to renewable and sustainable feedstocks and reduce reliance on petrochemicals.

Pressurised CO2 technology (Farther Farms) and its ability to reduce reliance on a chilled Supply chain literature review

This project funds a literature review of Farther Farms, Inc and its pressurised CO2 technology that claims to support the storage and distribution of fresh foods without needing refrigeration. If proven, this technology has the benefit to add value across multiple channels and markets in Australia and globally, responding to the growth in online food delivery, meal kit programs and the importance of reducing food waste.
