Food Technologist Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Food Technologist?

Food Technologist in Sydney:
"A Scientific Role in a Commercial Environment."
Pros: - I love how my role is cross-functiona in its nature; meaning that I am involved in new product development, quality assurance and control as well as in commissioning of new products. - It is an office, laboratory and factory job all in one. - No two days are exactly the same. - You feel wonderful when you see a product idea you helped "bring to life", then sits on the supermarket shelves.
Cons: There is nothing I dislike about my job.
