[00:00:08.616]it's a 178,000 square foot complex.
[00:00:12.982]This is the most advanced and best facility
[00:00:15.962]that our Food Science Department has in the country,
[00:00:18.282]and in many cases, in the world.
[00:00:20.462]Pilot plans, laboratories, teaching facilities.
[00:00:24.382]It is state of the art, and absolutely wonderful.
[00:00:27.532]Great facilities, both in the product development lab
[00:00:30.102]as well as everywhere on campus.
[00:00:31.982]By having the food processing center here,
[00:00:35.362]working with the product developers,
[00:00:37.622]with the faculty that is doing applied research,
[00:00:41.482]it attracts companies.
[00:00:44.362]We're thrilled we have one international company
[00:00:46.762]that's already been announced,
[00:00:48.632]Food Dreams Made Real,
[00:00:50.242]their brand is Suji's Cuisine.
[00:00:52.692]Nu-Tech Foods, is another great example
[00:00:56.222]of a company that's located here to do research.
[00:00:59.542]One of the benefits is, is we attract
[00:01:01.622]more and more companies as jobs.
[00:01:04.272]This is creating employment,
[00:01:06.902]a name for the state.
