New resource to support food science teachers across the UK

We are pleased to announce that we have relaunched our Love Food Love Science website, which provides a suite of services for teachers to support the new GCSE in Food Preparation and Nutrition.

Love Food Love Science shows how the scientific method works in practice using food and food-related examples. Through the website, teachers can access a range of resources designed for them by hands-on food scientists, which include simple explanations of key food science concepts, experiments and practicals, and a directory of other useful materials.

In addition, the Love Food Love Science website offers the opportunity to seek guidance from IFST mentors, who want to inspire both the teaching staff and students about food science and technology and show how tasks that are set at GCSE match real life circumstances and open up career prospects in this economically significant and vibrant sector.

Professor Carol Phillips, IFST Education and Careers Committee Chair, said: ‘IFST can play a unique role in upholding the quality of food science teaching and encouraging the next generation to think about the exciting and rewarding food science careers which are on offer in our economically significant and vibrant sector.

‘Creating classroom resources and providing food science mentors, who are actively involved in the food industry, helps to nurture the next generation of food sector professionals, which falls squarely into our role of safeguarding the public by promoting a strong food science and technology profession for years to come.’

If you would like to get involved in the project and become an IFST mentor, please contact Andrew Gardner via
