The Auburn University Food Systems Initiative (AUFSI) recently accomplished the goal of becoming an institute thanks in part to its multi-disciplinary faculty and successful ventures, including bringing in some $11 million in extramural funding. AUFSI is dedicated to improving the food system, which includes the growing, harvesting, processing, packaging, transporting, marketing, consumption, and disposal of food. The institute, jointly funded by the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station and the Office of the Vice President for Research, brings experts from a variety of disciplines and departments together in order to collaborate on improving the safety and quality of the U.S. food supply.
