If you see it on the grocery shelf, a Food Scientist was involved. Call it a Food Technologist or a “food nerd”, but it doesn’t get much better than getting paid to eat your own science experiment. Come be a part of developing new products anywhere along the path from the farm to the kitchen table.

“I get paid to eat!”

“We’re keeping  your food  supply safe.”

“Jello pudding in  a cup – that’s  my idea!”

“At Campbell’s I create new  soups.”


Discovery Education, the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), and the IFT Foundation have partnered to develop a unique program, designed to introduce high school students, teachers, counselors, and parents to the remarkable world of food science and technology, and the exciting career opportunities in the field.
