MOC – AUT and Food Safe


Purpose: To facilitate and promote cooperation between Auckland University Of Technology (AUT) and Food Safe Ltd by the sharing of knowledge of the current status of the food safety industry and research.

AUT and Food Safe Memorandum of Collaboration

AUT School of Applied Sciences has a well-respected footprint in both New Zealand and China where it offers a Food Microbiology programme.

This Memorandum of Collaboration (MOC) is the result of a relationship that goes back several years to 2014 aimed at continuously improving knowledge and the current status of food safety and world-class research both in New Zealand as well as globally.

This collaboration is a joint initiative to promote a holistic understanding of food safety across the value chain underpinned by academic rigor in line with the Dairy Capability Working Group Report produced by the Ministry For Primary Industries (MPI).

Food Safe Limited and the School of Applied Science at AUT intend to continue this relationship as a result of this formal MOC and pursue further co-operation in fields that are of mutual benefit.

Synergy: Our expanded collaboratory scope now links four continents: Australia, Asia, Europe and the US with even stronger relationships within New Zealand.
