This multi-disciplinary program provides opportunities for you to understand a number of important issues facing Canada’s agri-food sector including:
- the improvement of traditional foods and food processing,
- development of novel functional foods and nutraceuticals using advanced technologies and conversion of underutilized agriculture materials into value-added bioproducts.
This focus is in keeping with a contemporary emphasis on non-fossil fuel, climate change and the environment, water safety and quality, food safety and quality, and health and wellness. The program also reflects the tight integration of microbiology and food and bioproduct sciences with respect to production, quality assurance and safety.
