At the Perennia Innovation Centre, our food scientists help clients develop safe and marketable food and beverage products. Through the Agri-Food Accelerator Program funding, they gather important government resources for consideration when developing a food product. Our food scientists also develop informational fact sheets, videos, and other tools to aid Nova Scotia based agri-food and beverage processors through the product development process.
