Taste Your Future’s “Stir Up a Career” contest is an exciting new initiative from Food and Beverage Ontario, an organization that represents food and beverage processors in Ontario. As part of our Taste Your Future campaign, we are reaching out to students to encourage them to choose a career in food and beverage processing, the largest manufacturing industry in Ontario.

Students entered the contest either as a “Maker and Designer” or a “Scientist, Programmer and Engineer” by submitting a video about their great idea. The “Maker and Designer” category is for students with an idea for a new food or beverage product. The “Scientist, Programmer and Engineer” category is for students with an idea for a new process, software application, tool or machinery for food and beverage processing.

Taste Your Future thanks all the students who submitted their great ideas.
