Exclusive: Marzetti setting up new R&D facility in Lewis Center

The company has leased 45,000 square feet at 8333 Green Meadows Dr. in Lewis Center. There, it plans to centralize research and development efforts into a "first ever dedicated innovation center," said Dale Ganobsik, vice president of investor relations and treasurer for Marzetti parent Lancaster Colony Corp. The new facility will help the Columbus-based maker of salad dressings, dips, breads and rolls coordinate some of its product development efforts, Ganobsik said. "This will give our culinary and product development teams a facility to allow them to meet with customers and collaborate," he said.
