This is a new course offered for 2021. Students that take this course will have the opportunity to learn about how food products are manufactured and the process undertaken to introduce new products to the market.
Students will gain an understanding of food hygiene principles and apply these when producing a product. With a focus on South Canterbury and the ingredients that are grown in our community, students will develop their own product for a specified stakeholder.
Students will also explore how products are marketed, the importance of labelling and how this influences food choices. This course offers 12 literacy credits and has an optional exam. This course will appeal to a student that has an interest in food and its production in South Canterbury.
