Food and drink manufacturing are vital to the UK economy. It is the single largest manufacturing sector in the UK, employing 15% of the entire manufacturing workforce.
Food and drink manufacturing companies make up 7% of all manufacturing businesses, and they buy two thirds of all the UK's agricultural produce. Food producers must address environmental concerns, social responsibility and economic viability when designing sustainable food processing techniques. Sustainable food processing is all about finding new ways of meeting present needs without compromising future viability in constantly changing economic and environmental conditions. This is not just a corporate social responsibility issue but directly relates to efficiency, cost-saving and profitability and so the food industry must increasingly embrace sustainable food processing to succeed. The global food and agricultural biotechnology research base and product development pipeline, including genetically modified seeds, is expanding at a rapid rate as a direct response to the global food security challenge. This innovative and topical programme is ideal for graduates new to this dynamic and exciting sector. It's also particularly suitable if you're seeking career enhancement by studying food science and biotechnology at master's level. The programme will be of interest to graduates with an interest in developing knowledge and skills in subjects such as food biotechnology, food safety management and analytical techniques currently used in the food industry. It is also suitable if you already work in the industry and wish to develop your skills in these areas.
