Using Food Science in Special Interest Groups
Employment opportunities are excitingly broad and varied for food scientists. There are many special interest organizations including food trade associations, commodity promotion groups, and consumer advocacy organizations that require the skills of a food scientist. Unique aspects of these employers and jobs will be explained along with the special food science and related talents that contribute to success in these fields. I have had the good fortune of using my food science background working for a trade association in Washington, D.C. and I will use my own job as an example. After all, I work for a wonderful sector of the food industry—the candy industry.
