Canada's Smartest Kitchen

Canada's Smartest Kitchen (CSK) is the research arm of the internationally acclaimed Culinary Institute of Canada (CIC) located within Holland College - PEI's only community college. CSK contributes to the PEI and Atlantic region of food and bioscience businesses through innovation and research excellence. CSK offers services for the agri-food, fisheries and functional food sectors, by blending culinary expertise, with advanced technology capabilities from a network of businesses, research organizations, academic institutions and government partners.

One of these partners is FOODTECH Canada, where CSK and FOODTECH have formed an MOU to collaboratively deliver services that will enhance the contribution that each organization can make to Altantic Canada’s food sector. This includes food and bio-products, agri-health, and functional foods. 

This agreement will see FOODTECH Canada provide access to facilities, equipment and technical expertise to create prototypes, samples, scale-up and/or commercial production to support CSK’s efforts to generate new products and services. The organizations are also committed to share information that supports pre-commercial business analysis and valuation of products and technologies. Further, FOODTECH Canada will provide access to expertise in commercialization processes (e.g., proof of concept, scale-up and technical feasibility), and regulatory compliance, to support CSK efforts in food product development. In return, CSK will support FOODTECH's expertise through access to culinary knowledge and personnel, and access to specialized facilities.
