Edlong Dairy Technologies is proud to be a founding partner of Food4Thought, a foundation dedicated to raising awareness of the food science profession.
It is estimated that by 2020 the demand for food scientists will grow 10%, and with many of today’s experts nearing retirement, there may be a critical shortage of qualified scientists.
Food science is essential for feeding the world and solving challenges such as food safety, nutrition and security.
Food4Thought was created to find and encourage tomorrow’s future innovators and help ensure a healthier tomorrow.
The foundation specifically raises awareness about STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) opportunities, especially among girls and underserved populations.
Food4Thought strives to:
- Create a pipeline of future food scientists
- Provide education about food science as a career
- Empower future food scientists through learning experiences
