About AFBI

The Alliance for Food and Bioproducts Innovation (AFBI) Scholars Program is a network of scholars from the Department of Bioresource Policy, Business and Economics (College of Agriculture and Bioresources) and the N. Murray Edwards School of Business, University of Saskatchewan. The purpose of AFBI is to provide objective and timely analyses of innovation and commercialization processes, entrepreneurship, business strategies, value chain analysis and policy development related to bioproduct and value-added food innovations. As such, the AFBI will be a core component of the bioproducts research strategy being championed by the College of Agriculture and Bioresources, and the commercialization research focus of the Edwards School of Business. AFBI is proudly funded by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture to harness the University of Saskatchewan expertise for the benefit of the Saskatchewan agri-food sector.
