About Us

Our research focuses broadly on foods and the consumer and how understanding both can improve the sustainability and health of the food supply and population. We welcome industry partners and the opportunity to work on commercially orientated short- or long-term projects.

Our vision

CASS’s vision is to make sustainable and healthier foods the preferred choice of consumers.
Our objective is to identify and train students who show an interest in consumer, sensory, safety and flavour science and provide them with the opportunity to participate in different areas of industry-relevant research.
