ABOUT

Transformational Food Manufacturing (TFM) is a consortium of industry and university partners hosting a series of workshops around the topic of food as an advanced manufacturing industry. The discussions lay the foundation for a national

public-private partnership to revolutionize food processing and manufacturing in the United States.  These workshops are the spearhead of a structured and strategic initiative specifically focused on addressing two grand challenges of national and global importance.

 
 

STRATEGY

The pathway to transformation is to focus on pre-competitive technologies around the themes of food safety, security and waste. In the context of commerce, these issues can be directly correlated to data and standards that transcend the supply chain. And in terms of science and technology, they can be expressed in terms of sanitation and traceability.
