Food supply chains provide the link between primary producers and the consumer through intermediaries such as processors, manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers. As such chains become more integrated there is a greater emphasis on food safety and quality, traceability and public health. Primary producers now have to work as part of the chain to meet the needs of consumers. Developed in consultation with major companies within the agri-food sector, this course focuses on addressing these issues whilst focusing on the management and quality enhancement of products. It provides a grounding in the technologies that define modern food production and explores the impact of rapidly evolving consumer science and behavior on supply chain management. In the second year, students must take a (20 week minimum) industrial placement, working in an organisation between March and September. These opportunities are viewed very favourably by potential employers and provide students with the chance to experience real organisational life at first hand. Students are encouraged to choose wide ranging possibilities of types of organisation both in the UK and abroad. On occasions, students can elect to work for a longer period than 20 weeks and take a year out of University in order to do so. Our graduates are equipped with the skills necessary to manage key aspects of the complex and dynamic food sector and have gone on to work in Waitrose, Tesco, Tebay Services to name but a few. For part-time study, please contact the Admissions Office for more information.
