The UN predicts the global population will grow to 9.5 Billion by 2075, this means an extra three billion mouths to feed by the end of the century representing challenges and opportunities for food producers. Globally food companies produce about four billion metric tonnes of food per annum but 1.2–2 billion tonnes never reaches a human stomach (IMECHE, 2013). Numerous global food scares have made consumers suspicious of food quality and safety. Consumer habits globally are changing; consumers are demanding more nutritious, healthier food options that are simple and quick to cook.
The Bachelor of Applied Science in Food and Business Management course is aimed at students with a strong interest in food and food product development, nutrition and health and for students who are interested in developing a diverse range of entrepreneurial skills and business intelligence. The course seeks to prepare students for the challenges of producing foods safe for human consumption, developing more nutritious, healthier food options and markets that change quickly.

“During my four years in St Angela's College I didn't just make lifelong friends, I also learned, through the diverse and varied course, the skills vital for progression within my chosen career in the food industry. These skills enable me to work in New Product Development, an exciting and expanding area within the food industry”.
Julie-Ann Kelly (B. Appl. Sc. 2011 Food Technologist Kerry Group, Ireland).
During my 20 week Industrial Placement at Carroll Cuisine, a large meat processing plant based in Ireland, I worked in the Quality Department, the Marketing Department and the Finance Department. My placement was very enjoyable and I learned many new skills. Some of the key skills I learned while working in Carroll's involved developing marketing plans, quality control and how to produce financials. From working with various different people in different job roles I have become more confident, developed my listening skills, learned new software skills, developed innovation and problem solving skills and learned to work as part of an effective team. I would highly recommend Carroll's to anyone seeking industrial experience in the future.
