1997 State-of-the-art center opens for business

The Oklahoma Food and Agricultural Products Research and Technology Center (FAPC), a part of OSU’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, opened for business in January 1997. A state-of-the-art food product development, training and processing facility, the center was created to help discover, develop and deliver value-added products and processing to the Oklahoma agribusiness and food industries to promote economic development and business growth in the state.

Bridging the gap that sometimes exists between academics and the private sector, FAPC offers large and small businesses, producers and entrepreneurs access to faculty and staff with expertise in business and technical disciplines. FAPC has assisted more than 1,000 Oklahoma clients through 3,000 technical and business projects since its inception.
