To help them achieve this, Campden BRI has partnered with US-based Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) to bring the internationally recognised Certified Food Scientist (CFS) Preparatory Course to the UK and Europe for the first time.

The CFS programme, with more than 1,600 certificants in 55 countries globally, recognises food professionals’ applied scientific knowledge and can help reinforce their credibility and marketability. The CFS exam tests knowledge and skills in the following areas: food chemistry and food analysis, food engineering, food microbiology, food safety, product development, quality assurance and quality control, regulatory and sensory evaluation and consumer testing.

The Certified Food Scientist (CFS) Preparatory Course helps participants to prepare for the CFS exam and provides a refresher of their applied scientific knowledge via a series of lectures from expert instructors and practical tests. The first course will be offered on 25 and 26 June at the food and drink research company’s headquarters in Gloucestershire.

The CFS programme is open to food science and technology professionals from a variety of educational and professional backgrounds, but the minimum requirements are a Bachelor’s degree in a related science degree plus full time work experience.
