The Cornell Food Venture Center (CFVC) helps food businesses large and small introduce new food products into the marketplace. We provide educational materials, workshops and direct assistance with product safety evaluation, process development and guidance in local, state and federal regulatory compliance. We also provide referrals for business assistance, local suppliers and service providers.

Located in Geneva, NY, on the Cornell AgriTech campus, the CFVC is strategically located in close proximity to world-class food and agricultural science facilities and experts, yet just an hour away from the Department of Food Science of Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in Ithaca, NY. Additionally, the CFVC is located next door to the Cornell Agriculture and Food Technology Park, an incubator space for small food and agricultural businesses and the Center of Excellence for Food and Agriculture, which connects food entrepreneurs with the resources they need to grow their business.
