We have secured funding through the Hawaiʻi State Legislature to renovate the former campus cafeteria in the Pilina Building at UH Maui College in Kahului into a state-of-the-art, shared-use food processing facility.
This facility will have the capacity to design, test, and produce foods such as sauces, soups, jams, jellies, entrees, bakery products, dehydrated snacks, refrigerated fresh-cut produce, and raw or cooked meat, poultry and seafood products.
