Our Mission

Ontario Agri-Food Technologies’ mission is to provide leadership and coordination in utilizing biotechnology to generate wealth and sustainability for the agricultural and food industries of Ontario.

To accomplish our mission we focus our activities in four key action areas:

  • Encourage and support collaboration among public and private research groups to enhance the development and acceptance of products using biotechnology.

  • Develop, support and co-ordinate research programs amongst Ontario’s institutions; thereby providing new biotechnology products; ensuring innovation, efficiency and focus; and establishing new research partnerships and business opportunities.

  • Create a skills and expertise database of OAFT research scientists in biotechnology to help ensure that the best scientific expertise is used on a specific project. Maintaining this resource will also facilitate communication regarding potential research projects and focus research on relevant applications.

  • Secure funding to support research and development of new technologies.
