The Food Research Center (FoRC) is a Research,
Innovation and Dissemination Center (RIDC) created in July 2013 with
support from The Sao Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) for
multidisciplinary research in Food and Nutrition. The goal of
the FoRC is to address key global challenges and develop
internationally-ranked fundamental, strategic and applied research,
benefiting Brazilian agribusiness, consumers, policymakers and
regulatory agencies, promoting socio-economic development in the
The research strengths of FoRC are concentrated at three focal points:
