The building was erected in 1952 as the Meat Processing Laboratory and additions were constructed in 1965 and 1968.
The Food Science and Technology Building offers analytical instrumentation, equipment, and research-scale pilot plant facilities for use by students. The building is home to a 5,000-square-foot processing area, a pilot-scale dairy processing area, a fully equipped research winery, a cutting-edge high-pressure processing area, and laboratories equipped for modern chemical, physical, and microbiological analyses.
The building houses offices and classrooms for the Department of Food Science and Technology, the Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences, and the Meat Sales Center. Some offices in the Department of Food Science and Technology are now in the Human and Agricultural Biosciences Building I.
