You may know UGA’s Griffin Campus for its global impact in the turf grass industry, but Friday, it broke ground on a different kind of facility.

New South Construction is building the one-of-a-kind Food Product Innovation and Commercialization (FoodPIC) Center, which will provide resources for start-ups and existing companies. FoodPIC programs have already helped Kellogg and Chick-fil-A products.

The $5.5 million, 10,500-square-foot facility will provide space for food entrepreneurs needing access to expertise and equipment in developing new products and processes. Governor Deal and other leaders spoke at the groundbreaking about the Center’s applied research significance and expected jobs.
