The University of Guelph's presence at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair this year showcased the innovation and discoveries that are advancing Canada's place as a leader in safe, healthy and sustainable food. 

This newsletter, A Bite, is bringing a few highlights from this event to your inbox.
Do you wonder how pollinator health impacts the production of your favourite fruits and vegetables? Or maybe you wonder what the alternatives are for plastic food packaging? In this video you will see the diverse range of research at the University of Guelph that is solving problems to answer questions like these and many others that affect the food on our plates.
This year the University of Guelph brought the lab to the fair with the Longo's Retail Lab. Visitors of the fair were able to put on their researcher hats by exploring how consumers shop, why they select certain products over others, and the impacts of labelling on shopping decisions. 
Returning this year, was the “Grow Room” – a mobile green sphere, designed as a networking space and place to spark discussions about food. This instillation is a true cross campus collaboration, commissioned by AFI, designed and constructed by John Phillips, Senior Design Engineer at the School of Fine Art and Music, and the plants that bring life to this structure are grown and cared for in the Bovey Greenhouses.
