WHY AM I INTERESTED IN THIS CAREER?

I have been thinking of this career since last year, Im


kind of interested in the food processing and safety, as
food is one of the most important thing that well come
across every single day. As the public started to beware of
the importance of food safety, there is a significant
growth in food, nutrition and health sector. It would
definitely be a really great pleasure for me if I can learn
about how the food factories work and how they process
food, and to be a part of it. Food technologist is my plan B
because it is also related to food and nutrition studies, It
will be better to have a plan B, just in case if Im not able
to become a registered dietitian.
