WINNIPEG — Too many chefs in the kitchen isn’t a problem at Red River College. In fact, it’s encouraged.
The province is investing $1 million into the Prairie Research Kitchen to further research in Manitoba’s agriculture and food industry.
The new facility, which held its grand opening Thursday, brings together food scientists, culinary arts, and industry together at RRC’s Paterson GlobalFoods Institute downtown to develop new products and teach culinary students food science skills.
“This investment helps further cutting-edge research in Manitoba’s agriculture and food industry, and bring new ideas and products to life,” said Economic Development and Training Minister Ralph Eichler.
“Culinary research is an area of tremendous opportunity. The Prairie Research Kitchen provides a pathway to developing agri-food products that are not only good for our health, but are good for the Manitoba economy.”
The research kitchen will support more than 250 companies in Manitoba’s food industry and allow for dedicated workspace for culinary research and innovation.
