The state-of-the-art research facility supports more than 500 companies annually to develop new ways of producing, processing and marketing food from New York. The state's investment complements Finger Lakes Forward, the region's comprehensive strategy to revitalize communities and grow the economy.

The Cornell Food Venture Center boosts the success of farms, the food industry and the region's economy by supporting scientists, farmers and food entrepreneurs through the testing of advanced technology on small and large batches of products, creating new and innovative ways of growing, harvesting, processing and packaging goods for consumer consumption.

The Center and its partners bring about 2,000 products to market each year, including those from highly-recognized brands like Red Jacket Orchards, Giovanni Foods and Trader Joe's.
