Former Navy chef, Rob Dumas, head of the University of Maine's Food Innovation Program will present a free virtual tour, via Zoom, of the Processing Equipment and Analytical Suite. Through the resources at this pilot plant at UMaine, Orono, innovative development of ways to process, package and distribute food to reach larger markets, will enable Maine's agriculture and aquaculture industries to grow. 

Rob will show some examples of products from the equipment via photos from previous operations. Also part of the presentation are details on Combi oven technology, Lyophilisers (freeze-driers),  Smokehouse, Cheese Vat and Press, DeSinewer, and Pasta Extruders.

The program will be interactive for approximately and hour, and then allow for questions.  This will be an excellent way to see first-hand how technological innovations can reduce the limitations of our global food system.
