Through cooperation with CPF, the university aims to create health food for a better quality of life and sustainable social development with its accumulated knowledge. A network to explore health food will also be established, to add value to products and boost economic growth in support of the government's policy to achieve Thailand 4.0 through public-private cooperation.
