NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Rutgers Food Innovation Center (FIC) client Simply Good Jars appeared on “Shark Tank” at the beginning of March and were successful in getting a $500,000 investment from Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner!
“Jared Cannon approached the Rutgers FIC after seeing our website and the advertised availability of a space within the building previously occupied by another famous tenant…Impossible Foods. Jared and his small team were looking for a space to work on their very unique Salad in a Jar concept. Once they visited the center and saw the capabilities, our team of industry veterans and the ability to work in a USDA and FDA certified food manufacturing plant, they were very happy to join the FIC family. Jared has a vision for this product and is very passionate about its success,” Nolan Lewin, acting executive director & director of operations, Food Innovation Center.
