Coming Soon: Certified Test Kitchen at the MFIC
We have secured funding through the Hawaiʻi State Legislature to create a state-of-the-art, shared use commercial test kitchen in the Laulima Building at UH Maui College Kahului campus. 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.
