Job Description for Food Scientist

Food scientists perform a variety of tasks related to the production, testing and consumption of food. They may work in quality assurance within a production facility, testing for levels of various nutrients and the presence or absence of microbes (which are essential to proper nutritional labeling and food safety). Food scientists may perform routine checks of the product throughout the production process to verify the finished product is prepared correctly. Some food scientists may even develop new techniques to improve and streamline the production process or create new, improved packaging uniquely suited to the product. An agricultural food scientist works with farmers on a variety of tasks, including soil analysis, and provides advice about crop growth.
