Food Industry Day
Eighteen students and faculty were hosted by Kellogg Company in Muncy, PA and ConAgra Foods in Milton, PA, on April 4, 2011. Students were shown the important role that food science plays in all areas of a successful food company including new product development, marketing, operations, quality assurance, and product distribution. The time and effort spent by both host companies is greatly appreciated by the Penn State Food Industry Group, the Department of Food Science, and especially the students. Participating companies were presented a Nittany Lion plaque in appreciation for hosting the event.
