Food Application Center (FAC), Plymouth MN - USA







The FAC in Minneapolis is a unique installation, a playground for the food industry. Drawing on 160 years of food processing expertise, we’ve created this pilot plant as a platform for developing new ways to transform peas, chickpeas, beans, corn, oats, special grains and many other crops, into flours, flakes, snacks, pasta, cereals, meat analogs, food ingredients, and a myriad of extruded products. The new food solutions created here will lead to more sustainable food systems and better nutrition for millions of people.
