The research in the College is organized around 4 main themes (CAMS Strategic Plan 2010-2014):
- The sustainable production of food products through an understanding of the ecological and biological processes involved;
- The addition of values to food products through processing and the development of products and food habits that enhance well being;
- The sustainable management of renewable resources such as land, water and natural ecosystems;
- The development of food security through food trade and agribusiness.
These themes are general enough to provide flexibility in the researchers' individual research interests while specific enough to give to the College research a general framework for future development.
