SUNY Cobleskill Cuts Ribbon on $1.4 Million Dairy Processing Center

SUNY Cobleskill celebrated its new, $1.4 million Dairy Processing Center on June 1 with a ribbon cutting celebration. The USDA-certified Center enhances the College’s capacity to offer experiential education opportunities to students and crucial business development services to the region’s dairy producers and processors.

The Center houses fluid milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream infrastructure, with capabilities for High Temperature Short Exposure (HTSE) pasteurization, batch processing, homogenization, separation, and packaging. Students work alongside faculty and industry experts in the manufacturing processes of these products.

The Center also provides processing space for the region’s dairy producers and a venue for technical assistance and education for New York dairy processors in developing and piloting novel and traditional value-added products, quality control, solid manufacturing practices, regulatory compliance, food safety, and sanitation. Qualified entrepreneurs can also apply to have their employees receive additional training and professional development services.

Dairies and entrepreneurs are invited to apply for product development services and small-batch processing by contacting the Institute for Rural Vitality at SUNY Cobleskill. Users are carefully selected based on their potential for growth and impact on the local farm and food sector.

The Dairy Processing Center is part of the College’s Farm and Food Business Incubator and Farm and Food Business Accelerator.
