The FAST program is a multidisciplinary training program aimed at responding to the pressing needs for highly qualified personnel in the Canadian agri-food, natural health products and biopharmaceutical sectors. The health foods and related technologies sector is characterized by a multidisciplinary research and development environment that relies on the food and nutritional sciences, process engineering, and a strong component related to the medical sciences. The new training opportunities generated by FAST will ease the transition of program participants to their future jobs in the health foods and related technologies sector.

The FAST program is a joint initiative of the Laval University’s Institute of Nutraceuticals and Fonctional Foods (INAF), the University of Manitoba, the Richardson Centre for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals (RCFFN), and the Canadian Centre for Agri-food Research in Health and Medicine (CCARM).
