Niagara College has announced that it will be receiving a continued investment of $1.75M from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). The investment will provide $350K per year over five years to support food and beverage innovations through the Niagara’s Canadian Food and Wine Institute (CFWI) Innovation Centre. “This is exciting news, as it allows us to further our delivery of high-quality services to local and domestic food and beverage SMEs, in order to enhance their global competitiveness,” said Niagara VP Research & External Relations Marc Nantel. “We are able to better serve the innovation needs of these food and beverage companies who may have had difficulty developing new products and services for lack of affordable research expertise, equipment and facilities.” Food in Canada | Niagara (ON)
