Food Technology

New Mexico State University responded to a grass roots stakeholder initiative by developing and implementing a Food Technology program.

Since 1993, the Extension Home Economics Food Technology program has assisted food producers in the state by providing information on food regulations and with services such as process review of acidified foods and analysis for nutritional labeling.

Food processors receive direct technical assistance for product development, labeling and marketing of new food products.
