Mission and Vision


“To undertake world-class research in world-class facilities and support food security in the ASEAN region.

IJC-FOODSEC is conducting highly impactful research on a range of aspects relating to ensuring the safe and sustainable production of food in the ASEAN region. Food security faces many challenges caused by climate change, an ever-increasing global population and many socio-economic factors. We aim to deliver research that will provide support and solutions to many actors across the food supply system, from farmers to consumers. We will achieve this by the development of strong partnerships and collaborations with research organisations, industry and governmental organisations.
