Food technology

Two Unit Board Developed Course (BDC) Category A

Food technology is the study of food and the science behind it. We look at why food is so critical to our wellbeing. We discover how food components work together. We research the methods of food creation, production, preparation and consumption. Food technology is an ideal course for those looking for a career in the food industry, health, nutrition, dietetics, food science or those interested in learning how it all works.
