This comprehensive course offers a sound training in business concepts and practice, as well as a wider understanding of the unique environment within which food businesses operate.

Students will gain advanced knowledge of the factors specific to food effecting the sustainability of food production and the role that innovation can play in the sector. They will also gain an appreciation of the increasingly complex and global environment in which the food business currently operates and the uncertainties and risks attached to food production.
