The Dairy Innovation Institute is helping to develop new dairy products and support California’s No.1 agricultural industry: dairy. The Cal Poly Dairy Products Technology Center (DPTC), the predecessor of the Dairy Innovation Institute, was formed in 1986 to meet the growing needs of the dairy industry for relevant research, industry training and skilled graduates. In 2016, the center was combined with the dairy educational programs and commercial activities at Cal Poly to form the Dairy Innovation Institute. The institute is one of six dairy centers of excellence in the U.S. Cal Poly has invested in and firmly established a solid infrastructure of technical expertise, processing and lab research equipment, and industry partnerships to address the current and future needs of the dairy industry. The institute is not only recognized throughout California, but also nationally and internationally as a center of excellence for research, industry technology transfer, and education in dairy foods.The Dairy Innovation Institute is led by Director David Everett and includes associated faculty, research associates, technicians, an educational program manager and administrative support. The institute is supported by a seven-member Industry Associates Advisory Council to provide research and industry outreach direction.The institute has programs in research, outreach and training. The research program currently emphasizes cheese science and technology, dairy foods quality, dairy ingredients technology, and novel process technologies. The outreach programs serve the dairy industry through short courses and symposia. Furthermore, the institute delivers educational programs, industry outreach, and technology transfer to add value to the dairy processing industry and to develop leaders for tomorrow.
