Why Immokalee? Culinary Accelerator Immokalee

(pronounced: ih-moh-kuh-lee)

Immokalee, a garden where everything grows, was chosen as the location because it’s Collier County’s agricultural center and one of the most vital suppliers of the nation’s winter fresh fruits and vegetables. Some of the leading agribusinesses in the nation are located in Immokalee, from Lipman Brothers, King Ranch, and Gargiulo. In addition, there is great access to the best food and agricultural brain power and experience in the nation with both a University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Research Center and University of Florida IFAS Extension within a few miles from the Accelerator.

Oh, and there is even a state-of-the-art University of Florida run and staffed food science laboratory inside the Accelerator.
