Food is an essential part of everyone’s lives. As an increasingly health-conscious society and population, new and innovative approaches are required for food processing and preservation as well as our diet to obtain health and sustainability. Food and beverage processing is Australia's largest manufacturing industry. This highly dynamic industry offers great opportunities for food and nutrition scientists to work in different areas, such as product development, food regulation, quality assurance, food safety and research.
