The Guelph Research and Development Centre (Guelph RDC) located in Guelph, Ontario was established in 1997. It is one of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's (AAFC) network of 20 research and development centres. 

Areas of Research

The Guelph RDC focuses on research and development in food safety and value added food attributes to help foster a profitable agri-food sector in Canada. A unique pilot-scale food research facility (Containment Level-II) and analytical facilities enable scientists to study pathogen survival rates during food processing and identify healthy food attributes. This work helps Canada continue to lead in food safety and promotes the availability of healthy foods.

Sector Needs

The Guelph RDC supports innovative research, development, technology and knowledge transfer activities related to the following AAFC Science Sector Strategies:
