May 29 Afternoon:
Innovation Tours & Research Pitches

Note: Registrations for the Innovation Tours are now closed. Sorry for the inconvenience!

A great way to learn more about the unique pulse/plant (protein) eco-system in Saskatoon. A fantastic opportunity to establish new connections with the heart of the global pulse crop, processing and plant-based foods research world.

We offer 2 tours, which start at 10.30 hours from the TCU Summit Venue. Each tour will take around 1 ½ hours. You can join a tour at a later moment in time, should you arrive in Saskatoon after 10.30 hours, and you can therefore not join a tour at the start.

Tour 1: Saskatoon Food Development Centre, University of Saskatchewan, Canadian Light Source
Tour 2: Canadian Light Source, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon Food Development Centre

The Saskatchewan Food Centre assists food and ingredient companies develop new products and processes. We are working to develop new ingredients for the plant-based foods industry and to develop new food products in all food industries. We have processing facilities for companies to manufacture a wide variety of products including meat, dairy, fruit, vegetable, cereal, oilseed, and pulses.  Please join us for the Bridge2Food Innovation Tour in Saskatoon where we help bridge the gap on commercialization of plant-based ingredients and food products. http://www.foodcentre.sk.ca/
