Research output: Book/ReportOther report


This report provides supply chains feedstock considerations that underpin the case for two prospective outcomes:
1. A small-scale food-grade facility/pilot plant with multiple processing lines or modules with ability to manage multiple feedstocks for pre-competitive market testing, as well as training and scientific research functions.
2. A future commercial shelf-stable food processing facility operating at scale.
It specifically aims to:
- Identify the current supply chain capabilities and individual commodity outputs, plus growth potential as a consequence of establishing future shelf-stable food manufacturing capability in Northern Australia;
- Explain the opportunities for developing new plant and animal-based commodity production to capitalise on a shelf-stable food processing facility; and
- Investigate seasonality issues and how this could affect a shelf-stable processing facility.
