The Avery Foodservice Research Laboratory is located in the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at Purdue University. It is located on the first floor of Mariott Hall, close to the demonstration classroom. The laboratory is equipped to function as a test kitchen. In addition, it has the capability to do microbial analysis as well a number of different chemical analyses. A wide array of sensors allows heat, humidity, pressure, and power consumption to be measured and tracked. Recently, an area was added for the development, distribution, and analysis of surveys-based research.
In addition to the facilities available on the first floor of Marriott Hall, many other capabilities exist in numerous other units at Purdue University. Avery-based researchers have access to, and cooperative relationships with, many partner groups across the University such as Food Science, Nutrition, Animal Science, and certain engineering disciplines. Other offices attached to the Industry Technical Assistance program are also available as appropriate.
