FoodHQ has announced that ESR (Institute of Environmental Science and Research) has become the newest member of the collaboration.
ESR is a government-owned Crown Research Institute. It provides operational science and research services that underpin New Zealand’s public health, food safety, justice and environmental sectors.
Steve Maharey, Massey University Vice-Chancellor and Chairman of the FoodHQ Board, said ESR is recognised in NZ and around the world for its expertise in food safety science and research. He said:
“Having ESR as a member and on the Board is a great opportunity for FoodHQ,” says Steve Maharey, Massey University Vice-Chancellor and Chairman of the FoodHQ Board. “ESR is recognised in New Zealand and around the world for its expertise in food safety science and research.”
Maharey described FoodHQ, based in Palmerston North, as NZ’s international gateway for collaborative food research.
Except for ESR, the research and innovation members of the FoodHQ family are located within a one-kilometre radius in Palmerston North’s Fitzherbert Science Park and Massey University’s Manawatū campus.
