Nick Fragedakis portraitNicholas Fragedakis (M.S., 2014 North Carolina State University) is the Acidified Foods Process Authority and Director of the Entrepreneur Initiative for Food in the Food, Bioprocessing and Nutrition Sciences Department. He will serve the state of North Carolina food industry by evaluating formulations and processes to ensure the safe manufacture of acidified, acid, and low water activity foods.

Upon completion of his masters in Food Science, Nicholas served the State of North Carolina as a Compliance Officer with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. As a Compliance Officer, he worked closely with both entrepreneurs and larger food industry to protect the public with safe food supply. He went on to expand his knowledge of food safety and regulations by working as an Investigator for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in the state of Arizona. As an Investigator, he was able to learn from and work with subject matter experts in many different areas and commodities (produce, seafood, imports, dietary supplements, acid/acidified foods, baked products). This experience gave Nicholas the opportunity to see a wide range of food manufacturing and storage operations.

Nicholas is excited to be back in the great State of North Carolina with his wife and two children. He is passionate about seeing entrepreneurs succeed and seeing the North Carolina food industry become a global leader in processing and innovation. In his free time, Nicholas loves spending time with his family going to church, the beach and mountains, and exploring all the local parks and greenways by bike.
