About CIFT

Since 1995, the Center for Innovative Food Technology has worked with the agribusiness sector in the arena of food production, processing and packaging.

In 2004, CIFT expanded its programs with the establishment of the Rural Income Enhancement Program to identify, evaluate, demonstrate, and promote opportunities for growers, processors, distributors, and marketers of agricultural products to add value to their products.

Several major initiatives have been launched by this program, including development of direct marketing programs, identification, evaluation, and promotion of specialty crops, a greenhouse and bedding plant initiative, an expanded small business program, and development of techniques related to renewable energy.

It is funded through the USDA, Ohio Department of Development, individual agribusiness member-companies and ag groups, and receives grants earmarked for targeted projects.
