Special Projects

In early 2017, Arrell Food Institute at the University of Guelph invited proposals from university faculty, staff and students for special projects intended to elevate the university’s reputation as Canada’s food university, build strategic partnerships with stakeholders, and showcase university food research.

Since then, the successful applicants have been busy implementing their projects. You can read about the projects in the stories listed below.
