Representatives from the partnering food companies planned to select a winning sauce or sauces, which could then undergo further testing for potential commercial development.
Crabtree Foods owners Eddie and Nick Crabtree, both ECU graduates, said they were excited about partnering with the students. “Many schools have their stamp on products in the marketplace, and it would be great to collaborate with East Carolina on a new successful product,” Eddie Crabtree said.
“It has always been a goal of ours to work with East Carolina University, and we are thrilled about potential success in the marketplace,” he said.
Crabtree Foods distributes food to all branches of the military in the U.S. and throughout the Middle East, with offices in Greenville, Raleigh, and Dubai, UAE.
