The New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station at Rutgers University-New Brunswick is not just an education hub, but a resource for entrepreneurs in New Jersey and around the world. The Rutgers Food Innovation Center is a business incubator with a growing stream of global and domestic companies contacting them about resources and assistance to develop their businesses.

The center has worked with more than 2,000 food businesses since 2001, from a California-based company that makes vegan burgers, to a gluten-free bread company from Italy that eventually opened a production facility in New Jersey.

The center’s latest project is called the Food Business Innovation Network (FoodBIN) to foster collaboration and share resources with similar food incubators around the world. Their recent conference brought leaders from over 20 different incubator programs to Rutgers where they shared information about food trends, new technologies, and best practices.

“We are in a unique position to be able to educate the world in best practices and food business incubation at a time when this is such a hot category, not just in the U.S. but around the world,” said Lou Cooperhouse, executive director of the Food Innovation Center and a co-founder of FoodBIN.
