New Zealand's Plant and Food Research is discussing its new strategy with IFT attendees, where it is seeking interest in cultivars it has developed that will not be used as fresh fruits but which could yield interesting new healthy ingredients.

Plant and Food Research was formed 18 months ago in a merger between two of New Zealand's Crown Research Institutes, HortResearch and Crop and Food Research.

Karl Crawford, business manager, food innovation, at Plant and Food Research explains how the two entities are now seeking to leverage their core strength in plant breeding in the food ingredients sector, by putting to use cultivars not chosen for fresh produce but which have with interesting properties that can be tapped for other uses.
