Food Industry Centre
Programmes at the Cardiff School of Health Sciences are complimented by state-of-the-art facilities in the new £4.9 million Food Industry Centre which opened in 2009. Taking advantage of our new research laboratories, the university is enhancing its excellent reputation for food safety research
The centre boasts food processing facilities, test and development kitchens, a sensory evaluation suite and training facilities for food scientists, dietitians and nutritionists alike. Dietitians and Public Health Nutritionists in particular benefit from the opportunity to develop practical food skills such as estimation of portion size and nutrient content of typical foods in the specially designed practice kitchens.
Other science laboratories, including microbiology and chemical analysis facilities and the sports physiology laboratory are equipped with a wide range of analytical equipment, which allows you to master a number of techniques for research purposes or in readiness for employment.
