Recognizing the revolutionary research and statewide economic impact fostered by the Cornell Agriculture and Food Technology Park, the federal Economic Development Administration has committed nearly $1.5 million toward expansion of the Geneva-based food incubator and manufacturing space.
A major advocate for Cornell AgriTech and the mission of the Ag and Food Tech Park, New York State Agriculture Commissioner Richard Ball said, “The innovation and collaboration happening at the Cornell Agriculture and Food Technology Park is second to none. The incredible work being done at the Technology Farm, along with the Food Venture Center at Cornell AgriTech, and the NYS Center of Excellence for Food and Agriculture is rapidly advancing food and beverage research and processing while supporting New York’s farming community. The continued investment in food manufacturing is critical to the growth of our economy and ability to compete on a global scale.”
