Food Science and Technology

Through the Food Science and Technology Department, Zamorano trains professionals specialized in processing agricultural products to create added value that addresses regional challenges such as developing emerging economies towards industrialization and strengthening their competitiveness in a globalized world.

The Food Science and Technology Department bases its teaching on practical work, combined with science and research in new technologies in the food industry.
