Food is New Zealand’s biggest industry. Food technology is all about using science to 'add value' to commodity foods such as dairy products, meat, fruit, vegetables and grains.
Food technologists need to have an in-depth knowledge of raw foods and how they can be handled, processed and/or packaged to provide consumers with safe, convenient, nutritious end products.
Your local supermarket is full of food technology - from the muesli bars in the snack section to salami sticks in the delicatessen section. You'll also find food technology at work in bakeries and wineries.
People will always need food. The food industry will always need food technologists.
Food technology is very important to the New Zealand economy
New Zealand needs more food technologists!
