Food producers get boost with new Griffin facility - Around the Arch
December 2012 Issue
A $3.5 million food product innovation and commercialization (Food PIC) facility in Griffin will help businesses launch new food products and processes. The College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the Griffin-Spalding County Development Authority have been seeking state funds for the project since 2005. The university and the authority will each add $1 million to the construction fund. The Food PIC will be built on the UGA campus and will help food companies and entrepreneurs develop new products and processes, improve their profitability and create jobs in Georgia. The Food PIC project at UGA will be the only one of its kind in the Southeast and was created in response to the high failure rate—80 percent—of new food products. The Food PIC staff includes engineers, chemists, microbiologists, consumer sensory scientists and research chefs both from within the university and private industry.
