Precision fermentation has emerged as one of the frontrunners for additional sources of protein that could underpin the growth of a sustainable bioeconomy in Australia. We explain current trends and future research priorities.

New global research shows that when farmers and researchers co-create knowledge through On-Farm Experimentation there can be lasting and meaningful impact to farm profitability and sustainability.

Australia could be a leading supplier of sustainably manufactured products across a range of industries by expanding its local precision fermentation capabilities.
