Oregon State University Food Innovation Center Director of Product and Process Development Sarah Masoni joined us on the PeaOnMoss podcast to tell us about her work at the Innovation Center, and we chatted about the challenges that entrepreneurs face bringing their food concepts to reality. One unique trend coming forward is the blossoming of international cuisines such as African food and ingredients. Because there is less familiarity – and possibly limited availability of supply – entrepreneurs take on different challenges when commercializing their food items. In this preview, Sarah and Kimberly discuss the challenges of interpreting a food on a different continent and the priorities that the entrepreneurs have to choose to successfully and affordably produce their products.
