The Food Centre was established as a partnership between the Government of Saskatchewan (represented by Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture), the Saskatchewan Food Processors Association and the University of Saskatchewan (represented by College of Agriculture and Bioresources, Department of Food and Bioproduct Sciences). The range of expertise that each partner brings to the table enables the Food Centre to provide processors with information and technical assistance needed to manufacture a product, get it to market, and maintain a viable operation.
