Tucked into a corner of the University of Georgia’s campus in Griffin, Georgia, FoodPIC is an innovative research center that could be a key component in bringing business and industry to the state.
The FoodPIC, which will soon occupy a new 14,500-square-foot facility in Griffin, assists companies in developing new food products efficiently and economically. The center was initiated by faculty in the Department of Food Science and Technology, part of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
"FoodPIC helps small to medium food companies with their product development needs," Dr. Adhikari explains.
The innovative facility is developing products like nut milks, hot sauces and meat rubs. Faculty members also are exploring blueberry wine and carbonated yogurt, and studying the shelf-life of these and other novel food products.
