Food Development, Safety and Regulatory Compliance”
The Cornell Food Venture Center applies food science knowledge, expertise and resources to help food entrepreneurs to succeed when bringing new products to the market. The CFVC is recognized by State and Federal regulatory agencies as a processing authority and provides consultation in product development and process validation of food products to ensure food safety, regulatory compliance and promote economic development of small to mid-size food entrepreneurs. The CFVC has two locations for assistance in New York State; the main office based at the Cornell AgriTech campus in Geneva and a satellite office located in Brooklyn.
