Time to Feed Your Mind; Careers in Food Technology If You Are Interested in Developing New Products for the Food and Drinks Industry, a Career in Food Technology May Appeal. Michelle Rushton Dug out Her Blender to Find out More


Byline: Michelle Rushton

What does a career in food technology involve?

Food scientists/technologists work in the food and drink industry developing, and ensuring the safety of a wide range of products for consumers.

Their role includes investigating ways to keep food fresh, safe and attractive, finding ways of producing food more quickly and cheaply and testing the safety and quality of food.

They also plan the manufacture of food and drink products, working on newly discovered ingredients to invent new recipes and ideas, such as the creation of fat-free products.

Another part of their work is conducting experiments and producing sample products and designing the processes and machinery for making products in large quantities.

Food scientists and technologists tend to work for supermarket chains, food manufacturers, government research establishments, universities and local authorities.

What personal skills do you need?

You should be good at science and maths with an interest in food and cookery.

You should be prepared to work with strict hygiene rules and pay close attention to detail.

You also need communication skills, to be able to explain ideas to other scientists and factory staff and to be assertive and confident when enforcing regulations and reporting problems.

What training do you need?

You need a strong background in science, for example, a BTEC HNC/HND or degree in a subject such as food science, food studies, or food technology.
