Welcome to Cal Poly FSN Production Program
Developing, Processing, Packaging, and Marketing Unique Student Made Products
The FSN Pilot Plant is one of the only university-based food production programs where students work with departmental staff to design and produce commercially sold food items. The mission of our food production programs is to supplement our student's curriculum with hands-on learning and practical experience. Through this program, students have exposure to research and development, good manufacturing practices, total quality assurance, food safety and sanitation principles, as well as experience in sales and marketing for our value-added products. These activities provide students an opportunity to fortify the skills learned in their classes to prepare them for their future career in the food industry. Learn about our mission and how we implement the university's Learn by Doing philosophy.
