Food Science Extension includes outreach education programs that support county Extension agents, food entrepreneurs, value-added producers, industry and regulatory stakeholders, and Tennessee youth in 4-H and FFA.
Through applied research, food safety education, Hygienic Design Laboratory, and our Process Innovation Laboratory we help stakeholders improve their understanding of the science of food, food safety hazards, hygienic design of equipment, thermal processing methods, nutritional labeling, and other state and federal regulatory requirements associated with food manufacturing.
Online and in-person workshops on several regulatory compliance topics are posted here. We also offer personalized workshops for stakeholders who are interested in improving training of their employees.
