Food Innovation Center

Advancing Foods in the Northwest and Beyond

The Food Innovation Center (FIC) is a unique urban Agricultural Experiment Station located in Portland, Oregon. As part of Oregon State University, the FIC serves the Northwest food industry and communities, as well as national and international businesses. The FIC has three areas of excellence: a product and process development team to help new and established entrepreneurs bring products to market; a full service consumer sensory testing laboratory; and a food safety hub for education and testing.  

Fridays at FIC workshops

The Food Innovation Center offers six seminars created for entrepreneurs who are developing a food product. These seminars provide basic and valuable information that will help entrepreneurs, start-ups, and food industry members understand the many requirements for developing any new food products. Learn more about Fridays@FIC >
