Commercial acumen and scientific expertise

For 30 years Agritechnology Pty Ltd has been delivering commercially focused R&D for Australian businesses. David MacLennan established Agritechnology in 1985, building on his expertise in agri-product and food processing chemistry and engineering.

Throughout the years, Agritechnology has attracted highly skilled and capable people with experience in world-leading research-intensive companies.

As a small innovative company we are able to work with greater agility and flexibility than most institution-based researchers. We can move quickly from the lab into real-world applications.

The Agritechnology team combines commercial acumen with scientific expertise in microbiology, chemistry, biotechnology, fermentation, agri-product process engineering, and food science. Our researchers look for solutions that make scientific and business sense.
