Benefits of attending

Campden BRI’s Food Technology for Non-Food Technologists is a popular course for food industry staff in non-technical roles. During this 2 day course delegates will be introduced to a wide range of technical and scientific considerations faced by their own food technologists and will enhance their own skills through an increased knowledge of the basic principles of food technology. Typical attendees are those transferring from different professions, looking for a refresher course or have no prior knowledge of food technology or food industry, for example, engineers, administrators, marketing and sales personnel.

Course content

This course will provide basic knowledge of food microbiology, preservation and poisoning, as well as typical quality changes in products. Also covered will be basic food legislation, processing of chilled/frozen and heat treated food, development of new products, methods behind sensory evaluation and an insight into packaging and baking. Practical demonstrations within our processing halls are included.

Course aims

• To provide an introduction to food technology to non-technical people
