Center for Food Demand Analysis and Sustainability (CFDAS)
The Center for Food Demand Analysis and Sustainability (CFDAS) at Purdue tracks consumer insights and the economics of the food system. Timely reports on trends and emerging topics guide research on nutrition and plant innovations and reveal how policy impacts food markets.
These insights not only help consumers make more informed decisions but also help farmers, agribusinesses and policymakers improve the food system.
Dashboards make our food system more understandable by consumers and by the people working throughout the food system.
