The FLFPCI is a project led by Rochester Institute of Technology’s Center for Integrated Manufacturing Studies developed to spur economic growth and create and retain jobs in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York. The Initiative provides three programs to support the Food Processing Cluster in the region.
There are several other organizations participating in the Initiative through the Cluster Leadership Council as well as program partners assisting with specific roles to help make the Initiative a success.
Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming, and Yates counties.
The program teams are actively seeking company projects that will lead to job creation or retention in the region. For additional information, please contact Andy Harlan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The training needs survey will be administered in Spring 2012. Cluster companies are encouraged to complete the survey. Be sure to register to get on the mailing list. For additional information, contact Dr. Michael Haselkorn at email@example.com.
Additional information regarding training will be available once the Training Program team has compiled the results of the training survey. If you are interested in being trained for a career in the Food Processing Cluster or are a Food Processing Cluster company interested in training to advance your current employees, please contact Dr. Michael Haselkorn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Locations for FLFPCI training are being determined and will be posted on this website soon.
