IFS Activities Overview

The Institute for Food Sciences (IFS) was established on the Aomori Campus (Yanagawa area) of Hirosaki University on 25 March 2013. Because of its geographical and climactic conditions, Aomori Prefecture produces a wide variety of agricultural and marine products. The institute carries out a wide range of food science research including studies that contribute to the value of local agricultural and marine products, to the preservation and utilization of marine resources, and to the development of new food production technologies. In addition, IFS plays a role as a coordinator in the growth strategy for the food industry in northern Japan.
