Reinventing the grocery aisle, Niagara College style

Nathan Knapp-Blezius, a second-year Culinary Innovation and Food Technology student, and CFWI Research Assistant at the CFWI Innovation Centre, has been featured in a series of videos produced by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI). The videos highlight innovative work being done in CFI-funded labs across the country, and the exemplary students and researchers doing that work.

Nathan was selected for the shoot thanks to innovative research he is conducting with the CFWI Innovation Centre using lab equipment funded by the CFI.

Nathan was also on Parliament Hill this week (Feb. 13) as part of the CFI’s #IAMInnovation campaign, which raises awareness of the work being done in labs across the country using equipment funded by CFI. Of the eight students from across the country being showcased, Nathan is the only college student. 

Watch the video see how Nathan is making waves in the food world developing a cricket pesto.
