Updates regarding COVID-19
We are happy to announce that The Cornell Food Venture Center laboratory is RE-OPENING! CFVC will officially be accepting samples as of June 15th.

Cornell University is closely monitoring the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and has been taking proactive measures to prevent the spread of the virus.   The physical office of the Cornell Food Venture Center has been closed since mid-March and our services have been limited; however, our team has been working from remote locations throughout this time to continuously address industry food safety needs.  The university has now approved a plan for the Food Venture Center to open on a restrictive basis starting June 15th.   To ensure the health and safety of our staff, colleagues and community we will only be on-site to perform lab analyses; all other work will continue to operate from remote locations until further notice.  Again, we will be accepting new samples for lab analysis, however all in-person meetings and workshops are postponed until further notice.
