University College Birmingham brings home the Food Challenge bacon

IFST University Food Challenge

The IFST student Group hosted its first ever IFST University Food Challenge at Coventry University on 27 February 2019.

The event saw teams from five universities – University College Birmingham, University of Nottingham, Cardiff Metropolitan University, Coventry University and Oxford Brookes University – compete against each other in a food science trivia contest which covered a wide variety of food-related topics including food safety, food regulation, food manufacture, nutrition and sensory science.

For over two years, James Huscroft (Past-Chair of IFST Student Group) has been working with IFST and the Institute of Food Technologists Student Association (IFTSA) in the United States to bring this event together. Alice Nield (current Chair of IFST Student Group) picked up the baton to bring it home in the final stages.

After five exhilarating preliminary rounds and a neck and neck final, the team from University College Birmingham was crowned the IFST University Food Challenge champion.
