Roger.Stanley@utas.edu.au

Professor Roger Stanley is Foundation Director of the Centre for Food Innovation (CFI) based at Launceston. He also works as a joint appointment with Defence at the DSTG Food and Nutrition Research laboratory, Scottsdale and links local research to the national CSIRO food research network. His research focus is on value addition to primary produce such as by shelf life extension and the development of improved nutritional and performance (functional) foods.

Biography

Roger has a background from New Zealand completing a PhD in Biochemistry at the University of Auckland and working for Crown Research Institutes. His research areas were on industrial bioprocessing and separation technologies applied to the extraction of natural compounds and added value processing of meat, dairy and horticultural products. A move to Australia in 2006 was as Science Leader for the Queensland Government DPI Food Research unit running the Added Value Foods research program within the Emerging Technologies Group. This was followed by a transfer in 2010 to the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation at the University of Queensland (QAAFI) as a Principal Research Fellow. In this role he undertook  R&D on processing innovations and the health properties of tropical fruits and vegetables as well as establishing and teaching a course in Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals within the School of Agriculture and Food Sciences. He moved to the University of Tasmania in 2013 to set up the Centre for Food Innovation as a collaboration across UTAS, Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) and the CSIRO Food, Nutrition and Bioproducts Flagship. He also teaches within the School of Land and Food and researches as a member of the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture.

Research Themes

Roger's research through the Centre for Food Innovation and through the broader Food Systems via the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture is primarily through the Environment, Resources and Sustainability theme addressing sustainable food production through agriculture and aquaculture. The focus for the food research is value addition and value capture which increases economic returns through more profitable outcomes from use of limited land and water resources. Value addition research is consumer product orientated to understand and enhance drivers of value such as superior shelf life and freshness of fruit, vegetables and fish. The research is approached through new sanitation, processing and packaging technologies to enable product to reach higher value markets in optimum condition. Research on the underlying biochemical and physiological mechanisms such as microbial growth controls, oxidation changes and suppression of respiration is used to develop improvements to product values. This is coupled with research on understanding and addressing consumer attributes such as increasing convenience features in ready-to-use fresh-cut or minimally-processed fresh products or meals that result in local processing that enhances regional value capture.

The second major research theme addressed is Better Health through better prevention by delivering foods that address chronic diseases like coronary vascular issues, and food that can enhance functional performance  such as endurance, immunity and cognition. This work has focused on enhancement of nutritional attributes such as vitamin, mineral and food derived bioactive molecules through both breeding and processing. Original research in New Zealand and Queensland targeted the development of cultivars enhanced in nutritional attributes such as anthocyanins and the application of natural extracts such as plant antioxidants to deliver improved nutrition through functional foods. This work has been extended with research on food bioactive delivery systems to enhance uptake or target delivery sites in the gastrointestinal tract and research on foods that enhance health and performance.

MATS viability: SMEs Innovation program (2016 - 2017)$52,340
Description
The Project is with Defence under the Centre for Food Innovation Collaboration agreement. It is to understand and address the barriers of SME food companies to access new technologies and acquire capabilities to address Defence needs for new food products. It is focused by example on long shelf life components for ration packs that need higher levels of technology and understanding to meet the storage specifications. A specific example is the ability of SME companies to assess the merits and understand the risks of engaging with new technologies like the MATS microwave food processing to enable access to new product qualities and new markets. In Phase 1 the Project will engage an SME food innovation needs Assessor and Trainer to visit companies and determine their industry innovation barriers and training needs around being able to better assess merits of new technologies to provide entry to new markets. In Phase 2 the Project will develop training responses to address the identified barriers and undertake 2 workshops with SME company participants to deliver tailored training. Feedback and assessment will be used to make recommendations for further work on reducing barriers to SME technology innovation.

Asian export of branded King Island wallaby (1) Proof of concept (2014)$50,115
Description
The project goal is to improve the economic viability of Tasmania using the example of King Island agriculture that has additional costs due to logistics associated with island production and high numbers of indigenous wallaby. The objective of the proof-of-concept research is to determine if branded grass fed wild harvest King Island wallaby meat can be exported to Asia and command a premium price that is sufficient to compensate farmers for lost pasture production. The research is a leading example for evaluating the potential for Tasmanian product to be branded into focused Asian markets to achieve premiums not obtainable nationally. The project will undertake the first nutritional analysis of grass fed wallaby meat samples to determine the potential for health positioning in the Asian market and utilise local Chinese chefs to suggest ways to present and serve whole wallaby as opposed to only primal cuts. The information will be used to survey local top end restaurant market buyers to determine the potential selling price of whole wallaby carcase and to determine factors that may influence premium positioning. The conclusions, together with suggestions for branding strategy to capture a premium, will be used to make recommendations for a follow-on project to develop protocols for implementation of the strategy.

Improvements to the production of combat ration pack rice (2014)$40,000
Description
The aims of this project are: to understand and validate the critical cost and quality factors for the production of freeze dried combat ration pack (CRP) rice so Defence has the option to contract the production commercially; to determine the potential for quality improvements to the CRP rice using an alternate starch rehydration process; to determine the potential to adsorb and protect nutrients inside the freeze dried rice as a means to fortify and stabilise the nutritional content of long life meals over several years. Freeze dried CRP rice production will be trialled and monitored in a commercial premise and the process compared to defence production to highlight differences. Experimental batches of CRP rice will be produced varying the production method and rice type to determine the impact on the rice eating quality and behaviour of the starch in the rice grains and its consequent effect on processing behaviour and eating quality. The binding and adsorptive loading capacity of mineral, vitamin and protein nutrients into rice rendered permeable by the freeze drying process will be tested to determine proof of principle for extended shelf life encapsulation and rice nutrient fortification. Project outcomes will include process improvement specifications for Defence and potential licensing to freeze dried meal producers and technology for rice fortification for long life defence and emergency foods and humanitarian food aid.
