The Food Innovation Center is an Oregon State University Agricultural Experiment Station located in Portland Oregon. We provide technical, creative and educational services to the Northwest food industry, entrepreneurs and communities, with a focus on quality, safety and sustainability. The Food Innovation & Sustainability Fund is intended to: 1) educate and train the next generation of food scientists, particularly those from underrepresented backgrounds; 2) modernize our equipment and facilities to better serve Northwest businesses and communities and reduce waste; and 3) to advance the sustainability and safety of food across the Northwest.
