     The mission of the Center for Food Processing and Engineering (CFPE) is to take a scientific, multidisciplinary approach to research to create a high-quality, wholesome, palatable, safe and nutritionally balanced food supply.   In order to fulfill this mission, CFPE has established the primary objectives of facilitating and encouraging research leading to value-added products and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of processing of agricultural products.

    The Center for Food Processing and Engineering is comprised of faculty members from the disciplines of food science, biological and agricultural engineering, poultry science, animal science, agricultural economics, horticulture, and medical sciences. The Center's structure serves to foster interdepartmental interaction between these scientists. This interdisciplinary approach develops alliances between academia and industry, alliances that foster an appropriate balance between fundamental and applied research in program areas that are critical for growth of food processors in the state, region and nation.
