Section 18A:64J-8 - Food technology center establishment
18A:64J-8. Food technology center establishment
The Legislature finds and declares that food technology, encompassing the study of the chemical, biological, and engineering aspects of food and food processing, packaging, and storing, is an important part of this State's economic base. Located in the heart of the nation's major population center, New Jersey has a good transportation system, and varied and extensive agricultural and aquatic resources. By expanding its role as a major food processing and distribution center, New Jersey can increase employment and benefits from the business opportunities thereby created in related areas such as ingredient supplies, chemical and packaging instrumentation, transportation, warehousing and waste disposal. The Legislature finds that the establishment of an advanced technology center in food technology would assist in promoting food technology and economic growth relating thereto.
