Our 13th Annual

AFAS Fellowship Presentation for 2016

Thursday 15th December 2016

Dr Christian Gunawan will be the recipient of the 2016 AFAS Fellowship.

The study mission will enable Dr Gunawan to synthesize and purify diary lactone in industrial quantities at a pilot scale plant at AgroParis Tech, in France, to assess the viability of this approach. If successful, diary lactone could be produced locally from a renewalable source for use by cheese and diary confection makers to enhance the flavour of food products.

Dr Gunawan received his Victoria Fellowship for Physical Sciences on 29th November, pictured here with the Minister for Small Business, Innovation & Trade, the Hon. Philip Dalidakis MP and Mr Pierre Tolé, President of AFAS-Vic.
