Dr. Rani Whitfield, who serves on the university’s board of supervisors, told reporters at the Baton Rouge Press Club Monday that all land for the upcoming plant has been secured and cleared. They expect to have a sample of their product ready by early summer. Dr. Whitfield says this his a huge move forward for the university.
