BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The LSU AgCenter has hired a veteran food consultant to organize a food business incubator.

Gaye Sandoz, who most recently was with Edible Enterprises — a food business incubator in Norco — hopes to have the incubator fully developed over the next 12 months.

The AgCenter's incubator will be the second such facility in Louisiana.

Headquartered on LSU's Baton Rouge campus, incubator tenants will have access to expertise of LSU faculty and students.

Initial funding will come from reallocation of internal resources, though economic development grants will be sought. Incubator tenants will pay rent.
