We Bring Together Many Resources
The University of Kentucky Food Systems Innovation Center (FSIC) was created to assist processors, producers and entrepreneurs to maximize their market capabilities by having access to UK's technical and business expertise. We have combined resources from the Department of Animal and Food Sciences and the Department of Agricultural Economics with programs such as MarketReady, Kentucky Proud, and Kentucky MarketMaker, and organizations such as the Kentucky Center for Agriculture and Rural Development (KCARD) and the Kentucky Small Business Development Center to help you build your business and to follow government regulations that can be daunting when trying to get through them by yourself.
"Success or failure often depends on how well issues beyond the 'what' are dealt with." (Tim Woods and Steve Isaacs in PRIMER.)
