About this Unit
This unit will extend student understanding of current and emerging food processes and packaging technologies. Students will gain an appreciation of the physicochemical processes involved in food manufacture and their integration to produce safe, nutritious and palatable food. Students will become familiar with methods to monitor shelf life of foods, learn about packaging science and be able to select the most appropriate packaging solution for a range of food applications. The environmental impact of food processing and packaging will also be explored, along with the factors affecting the sustainability of food manufacture. Practical workshops will be conducted to produce and analyse food products, plus factory tours to food manufacturing and packaging sites.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Students required to have Personal Protection Equipment e.g. Laboratory coat, safety goggles, enclosed shoes.
