Fresno State’s Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology unveiled an on-campus, state-of-the-art citrus packing line on Wednesday morning.
The line will process fruit grown on the university’s 1,000-acre campus farm.
“We are so appreciative of this gift and all of the resources that Jim and Bee Sweet Citrus have extended to us, from hosting classes at his facility to speaking to our students on campus and our awards banquet,” said Athanasios Alexandrou, chair of the industrial technology department. “This equipment will be immediately utilized by a full class excited to learn about this technology. Being able to work with other departments and colleges on campus makes this a gift that will better prepare Fresno State students for food safety and agricultural system management careers far into the future.”
