Food Science Jobs

Food Science Jobs within the food manufacturing sector are extremely specialist positions. Do you have a scientific mind? Are you interested in the science behind wholesale food preparation? If you answer yes to the above, then jobs in food science could be the career of choice for you.

Basically, food scientist jobs will entail working the food & drink industry helping to develop food products ensuring they are safe for you and me to eat! Such jobs require incredible attention to detail along with the ability to (not surprisingly) stick to the strictest of hygiene regulations.

Those with successful food science careers begin with (at least) BTec but usually a degree in food science, food studies or food technology.

Food scientist jobs use specific techniques to find ways of manufacturing food faster and more cost effectively, discover new ways of keeping food fresher for longer, make sure the packaging nutrition information is accurate and most importantly ensure what we eat is safe and of the highest possible standards of quality.

Jobs in food science will also usually involve supporting new product development as well as technical / quality assurance teams which vary from factory to factory so as your food science careers grows, you will also gain expertise in areas such as market research, engineering and even planning production.

As a food scientist, your day to day environment would be the onsite laboratory but you will also find yourself in research departments, quality inspection and even on the production lines.

Although not exhaustive, these include attention to detail, being able to work on your own initiative as well as part of a team, high levels of confidence and the ability to communicate on all levels.
