A delegation of Korean seafood buyers came to the Food Innovation Center last week to taste products made by OSU chef Wayne Philen, using Oregon salmon, shrimp and crab. The Koreans liked what they tasted and have returned home to consult with their respective fast food corporations in Korea. Eventually, the Food Innovation Center predicts it will sell the rights to final formulations for Korea to Oregon food processors, who in turn will make the products in Oregon for Korea using Oregon seafood.
