New Crops for the Future Research Centre -- for food and non-food uses
Date:6/27/2011

the Future wants to work with the true stakeholders, the people who have grown, farmed and protected these plants for centuries without any support from governments or from public or private sponsors.

Discussions on the design and construction of the CFFRC facilities are already underway with leading architects and consultants. Whilst con
