FaBA and the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) have an agreement to support innovation projects that add value to the Australian grains and legumes industry. 

FaBA is Australia’s Food and Beverage Accelerator.

The Australian Government’s Trailblazer Universities Program, delivered by the Department of Education, builds new research capabilities, drives commercialisation outcomes and invests in training.

The FaBA & GRDC Investment Round is an opportunity to build Australia’s food and beverage manufacturing sector using the following grains and legumes:

  • Wheat
  • Coarse grains – barley, cereal, maize, millets/panicums, oats, sorghum and triticale
  • Pulses – chickpeas, cowpeas, faba beans, field peas, lentils, lupins, mung beans, navy beans, pigeon peas and soybeans
  • Oilseeds – canola, linseed, safflower and sunflower
