The summer program Food Product Development takes place on our campus from July 1st to July 20th. Students come from around the world to study in English, go on our cultural trips and befriend other students from different cultures in an experience often described by participants as “unforgettable”. Our students also learn about the domestic and international biotechnology markets. Sup’Biotech’s professors come from diverse training and educational backgrounds, such as universities, research centers, and industry.

Sup’Biotech’s students are prepared for a wide range of responsibilities in various biotechnology and international corporations, working in the fields of health, cosmetics, the environment, pharmaceuticals, and agribusiness.

Food Product Development

New food products are developed and tested every day, then brought to market by companies that have spent millions on R&D. This program has been designed to help our students intimately understand this process. Students will perform food science-related lab work and develop food products, culminating in a project that combines product design with business and marketing concepts. Lab work is coupled with market research and business implementation to give students a realistic look at the food science industries.
