Concept to Market
Maybe you have a delicious dish from an old family recipe you think people would purchase. Or you’re a farmer wanting to create a value-added product. We can help you develop a commercial, retail-ready product. We also work with existing companies to test or further enhance their product(s). Services include food safety, processing, packaging, regulatory advice and much more!
We’re here to help you with whatever you need in order for your food startup to grow. We’ll help you fill out FDA-required paperwork, help make nutrition facts panels for your products, provide analytical services for your products, provide training on various processes, and more.
As part of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture’s Institute of Food Science and Engineering, food scientists are only a short walk away and are willing to help with the creation of your product. Within the building, you’ll also work alongside experienced and knowledgeable food entrepreneurs that might teach you a thing or two.
