The food and drink industry is the UK’s biggest manufacturing sector, and over 97% of the 11,500+ food and drink manufacturing businesses are Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).

The rich and diverse home grown produce and strong agricultural sector in Scotland along with the complex global issues surrounding food, its production and sustainability make this an exciting time to study one of our food related courses.

The growing opportunities in the sector for innovation, employment and enterprise combined with our world leading research and vast experience of our academic staff gives students the latest knowledge and links to industry throughout their studies and the opportunity to excel in the field.
