“Hello Team FoodGrads! I’m currently at Brescia University College and will graduate with BSc Nutrition and Dietetics. Most of my peers are looking to pursue careers in the Healthcare Industry, I’m wondering with this degree what my career options are in the Food & Beverage Industry?”
Feedback from different perspectives of the industry…
The Product Innovation department in food processing industry could be something to consider. Yesterday, I was looking at an initiative of Biofortification Beverley Postma where nutrition science is embedded at the level of a seed (farm). So I would say consumer driven businesses along the entire value chain would have an interest in such a profile – Dr. Vijayender Nalla
There is NO better industry to work in than the food industry. Highly satisfying work with constant and unique challenges, where ‘art’ meets ‘science’. It is fast paced and not meant for the faint of heart or those that can’t think on their feet. Offers very high stability vs Mfg jobs, as they say. “good times.. or bad times… people have to eat”. You get to earn a living making a great product, customers pay you well for it and if you do it right delivering quality and price, they come back every time. Highly recommend. But I will admit to being biased, I started in the restaurant industry at 16 and every job since has been food related – Bradley Thomson
