Food technology is all about understanding the composition of food and in a way “Reinventing” it. Food technology is concerned with the process of getting food from the farm to the super market. Food technologists work in food research and development to ensure the quality and safety of food products.
Food Technology involves all aspects of food science, including production, processing and distribution. This professionals work with improved manufacturing methods such as preservation, storage and new product development. They work with food scientist to enhance the nutritional value of foods. This course offered in-depth knowledge, along with practical experience and provide an amalgamation of science, Technology and education pertaining to the food industries.
“Food is Dominated in our lives – We cannot live without it ! ”
Majority of the food items are biological in origin. The process of harvesting, distribution, storage and preparation is quite complex. Due to advancements in technology, there is an increasing demand for easy to prepare and easy to consume food items. Therefore there is a growing market demand for more advancements and sophistication in the field of “Food Science & Technology” globally.
If your ambition is to lead a department or an entire food company, you will be pleased to know that a degree in food technology qualifies you to work as a production manager. As a commercially oriented technologist, you can advise large-scale buyers on ingredients and raw materials.
