Robert M. Kerr Food & Agricultural Products Center
The purpose of the Robert M. Kerr Food & Agricultural Products Center is to help develop successful value-added enterprises in Oklahoma to bring the products, the jobs, and the dollars back home. FAPC opened for business in early 1997, and the 96,000-square-foot stand-alone building houses animal harvesting, food manufacturing, grain milling, sensory profiling, food microbiology and analytical laboratory facilities, as well as conference facilities and applications laboratories for demonstration and prototype testing. FAPC has assisted more than 1,000 Oklahoma clients through 3,000 technical and business projects.
By offering large and small businesses, producers and entrepreneurs access to faculty and staff with expertise in business and technical disciplines, FAPC strives to discover, develop and deliver information that will stimulate and support the growth of value-added food and agricultural products and processing in Oklahoma.
