Agri-Food Analytics Lab (AAL) research focuses on how global trends affect food processing, distribution and retail sales for Canadian Agrifood businesses including food service.

AAL research is enabling the agri-food industry to better meet demand, and reduce costs and waste in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner – right across the food life cycle. AAL research does this by improving the agri-food industry’s understanding of:

  • consumer tastes by location
  • customer experiences and services
  • marketing
  • supply chain and logistics
  • quality and safety tracking
  • price and market analysis
  • optimized production, sourcing and inventory utilizing demand forecasting algorithms (such as ‘regression’).
