Recently there has been increased interest in food processing. Many people are trying to get products from family developed recipes into the marketplace. Most of these entrepreneurs have difficulty locating information on processing techniques, ingredients, equipment, regulations, and most importantly, marketing. Many of these enterprising people contact Food and Drug personnel or Extension agents who refer them to the Food Technology Specialist at Texas Agrilife Extension Service. A great deal of time is spent just trying to locate information on such things as labeling, safety, container sources and many other areas of confusion. This Website is not designed to answer all questions, but hopefully most of the important ones.
