The CFMAS Applied Research Report Series consists of peer-reviewed research related to food marketing and agribusiness, with a focus on California. There are currently several projects underway at the CFMAS, but we are always looking for more. If you would like to sponsor a research project about your company or industry, please contact us. CFMAS representatives are ready and able to engage in research related to the food industry and agribusiness management.
