Food Science and Technology

Food Science and Technology was developed by AIB to fill a training gap that existed in the food processing industry for many years. It is unique for its breadth and design. We brought together many food scientists and industrial technologists and assembled the basic information that provides a well-rounded understanding of the food processing industry.
