A group of food and agricultural leaders is leading the charge to help Oklahoma State University’s Robert M. Kerr Food & Agricultural Products Center meet the needs of Oklahoma’s diversified food industry.
“FAPC is fortunate to have an advisory board that is invested in the future of the center,” said Roy Escoubas, FAPC director. “The committee members understand the importance of FAPC and are continuously looking for ways the center can grow and better serve the food and agricultural industries.”
More than 600 companies make up Oklahoma’s food-processing industry, which accounts for almost 2 percent of the state's employment base, according to the Oklahoma Department of Commerce. Small companies make up the majority of the state’s food industry.
