Do you have food preservation questions? Do you know someone who wants to start a food business? The place to call is K-State Research and Extension (KSRE)!
While the University of Georgia and the National Center for Home Food Preservation (NCHFP) is a great resource, we at KSRE want to help Kansans. Dr. Elizabeth Andress, who runs the NCHFP, does not have the staff, nor does she know the regulations in Kansas required for food businesses.
So let us help! For home food preservation questions, contact Karen Blakeslee at the Rapid Response Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or www.rrc.ksu.edu/foodpreservation or 785-532-1673. For Kansas food businesses, contact Dr. Fadi Aramouni at the Kansas Value Added Foods Lab at email@example.com or www.ksre.ksu.edu/kvafl or 785-532-1668.
