Food tech

Food technology is a branch of food science that deals with the production processes that make foods.

It helps you develop cooking techniques, as well as knowledge of nutrition, food traditions and kitchen safety. 

Food tech gives you a range of skills, like planning and organising, working independently, understanding and applying science and even creative skills.

It can lead to a wide range of careers. For example you could be designing new ice cream flavours, or working in a hotel, restaurant or tourist attraction. 

You could also be working in distribution or retail for a supermarket or advising people about healthy eating as a nutritionist. Food tech combines well with biology, chemistry and business studies.
