The food industry is constantly changing. New developments and innovations continuously strive to increase nutritional value of foods, and to address social and cultural preferences of consumers. Bringing delicious, nutritious, safe, culturally appropriate, and yet exciting and innovative food is truly multi-disciplinary.
