About this course

There's worldwide demand for scientists with an understanding of food safety. The Food Safety major in the Bachelor of Science addresses this need.

Food and beverage exports are critical to New Zealand's economy but overseas markets want to make sure that these products are safe and of high quality. New Zealand organisations need to meet the necessary food safety standards to avoid being blocked from important markets. An understanding of food safety is also essential to minimise the economic impact of crop damage and food spoilage.

Through the Food Safety major you gain important practical skills in food microbiology, instrumental food analysis and food chemistry. These skills are highly transferable, and can lead to exciting careers around the world.
