The Food Processing and Development Laboratory (Pilot Plant)

Experienced full time staff professionals are able to assist in all aspects of food product development and processing.

You can visit our facilities and work collaboratively with our personnel, or the staff of the FPDL can process your product to your specifications and ship it to you overnight. Customized pilot plant product runs can be conducted with our established access to ingredients and raw materials.

Our 10,000 square foot main processing area is located adjacent to our fully licensed operating dairy plant. This combination allows for scaling up of production in order to provide a variety of products for customer demonstrations, food shows, and exhibitions.

Cornell University's research and extension staff provides our clients a resource to find answers to tough research and development problems.


In order to comply with Cornell University's commitment to provide web accessible content, we have removed all PDF files from this site. The files must be remediated so they meet compliance standards and will be posted back online once this step has been completed.

To provide a visual cue to content available as PDF files, we have italicized the text and hyperlinked them to an email requesting the document, ex: Bachelor of Science in Food Science: Science Emphasis pdf

If you would like multiple PDFs, please email Sarah Lincoln and indicate which files you wish to receive. We are permitted to send un-remediated files via email.

We apologize for this inconvenience.
