welcome to the food policy institute
providing answers to emerging questions

the food policy institute is a research unit of rutgers, the state university of new jersey, that addresses food policy issues. we view our role in food policy research as supporting public and private decision makers who shape aspects of the food system within which government, agriculture, industry and the consumer interact.

our mission is to bring the depth of academia’s knowledge to bear on pressing issues and challenges facing the food system by providing timely and relevant research that is responsive to the needs of government, industry and the consumer.
