IFT17 Go With Purpose Global Challenge
Continuing our work to help plug the skills gap across the industry we are working with initiatives that encourage and engage students, including The Go With Purpose Global Challenge run by IFT (Institute of Food Technologists). The challenge asks international students to think creatively and critically about global food issues.
The selected participants, working in teams, re-evaluated a food product using the resources offered by the IFT 2017 annual meeting and food expo. The teams received guidance from industry mentors - including our Head of Membership and Training, Bertrand Emond - and an opportunity to network with food industry leaders. Bertrand helped his team consider alternative protein sources for soybased protein bars.
The participants will have the opportunity to participate as a panellist at the 2017 IFTSA virtual Global Summit in November.
