Innovation in Ingredients

Applied Food Sciences demonstrates a commitment to innovation in food, nutrition and life sciences with the grand opening of a Midwest-based Innovation Center in Iowa City, Iowa. AFS’ newly opened Research and Development Center, is a multi-million-dollar investment located at the University of Iowa BioVentures Center (BVC) featuring molecular biology labs, advanced analytical and materials research laboratories, and a pilot production plant.

One of the primary goals at the new Innovation Center is to help foster the growth of plant-based science, which will add even more value to AFS’ current and future ingredient offerings. AFS is committed to our partners raising the bar on standards in supply chain sustainability, ingredient innovation, and expert formulation & manufacturing support.

Social Responsibility

It is difficult to ignore the planet. Consumers are becoming more aware that, in many cases, where raw materials are sourced, global living conditions are poor and the earth is easily taken advantage of. Applied Food Sciences recognizes this problem and has taken serious steps by creating our own Responsible Sourcing Initiative that includes: 1) Sustainable growing, 2) Social and environmental responsibility, and 3) Full traceability.

AFS works hard in implementing best practices and programs that enable the entire supply chain, from seed to label, to thrive in this model. But who we work with is very important. From the farms we partner with, to our dedicated customers, we all must understand our role in promoting a socially responsible business that can succeed in today’s market.
