The FFRU was the first research body at CPUT to obtain a grant from the CPUT Research and Innovation Fund. The grant, awarded in 2009, ensured the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment which allowed the unit to undertake several research projects. The FFRU also manufactured the first batch of the Omega Caro-E capsules with the funding provided. This batch was mainly used for promotional purposes and was enthusiastically received by consumers all reporting positive feedback. In 2012 the unit obtained another CPUT Research and Innovation grant for the manufacturing of a second batch.

Additional sources of funding and income for the FFRU are research contracts for a variety of entities and funding generated by the laboratory services.
