Could you be a Butcher, Buyer or New Product Development supplier?

Do you fancy taste testing chocolate or developing flavours for crisps for a living? Some of our students have gone on to become buyers, food technicians and new product developers with major brand companies, with salaries which are as sweet as their job titles, starting at around £25,000!

If you become a Reaseheath food technology student you’ll learn about food science and nutrition and about the fascinating journey made by the nation’s favourite dishes, from primary producer to supermarket shelf.

You’ll be part of an exciting industry which is dynamic and fast paced, constantly changing to meet consumer demands, and you’ll be encouraged to explore every aspect, from trying out new flavours to market research and packaging.

Reaseheath’s industry standard Food Centre is the only educational institution in Britain to have been awarded the British Retail Consortium Grade A (issue 7) certification so we command huge respect within the industry. Our commercial facilities are regarded to be among the best of any college in Europe.

Along with looking forward to great career prospects, our students tell us they like:

  • Spending time hands-on in our dairy processing halls or in our dedicated butchery, bakery and new product development areas, putting the theory they’ve learned in the classroom into practice
  • Competing and winning at the biggest cheese show in the world – the Nantwich International Cheese Show
  • Selling the cheeses, ice-cream, and other dairy products they’ve made in the college café (particularly when people come back for more!)
  • Joining study tours in the UK which include behind-the-scenes visits to businesses ranging from blue chip companies to entrepreneurial artisans
  • Completing relevant work placements with the many regional and national industry partners including Premier Foods, Bright Blue Food, Robinsons and Hovis.
  • Carrying out scientific testing and new product development in our high-spec laboratories on campus
  • Being taught by supportive and professional staff, all of whom have invaluable industry experience
