Are you a processor, producer, or entrepreneur?

The Food Systems Innovation Center was created for you. 

The University of Kentucky Food Systems Innovation Center (FSIC) was created to assist processors, producers and entrepreneurs to maximize their market capabilities by having access to UK's technical and business expertise and applied research solutions. We have combined resources from the Department of Animal and Food Sciences and the Department of Agricultural Economics.
