Master Food Identity

A multidisciplinary programme which trains future executives in the agri-food sector with an international vision of culture, regulation, entrepreneurship, market analysis and competences in food processing, authentication, sensory analysis, quality control and marketing strategy. The joint MSc programme is designed to develop both technical and commercial skills through a curriculum focusing on local and traditional food products through teaching and learning in 4 countries (France, Italy, Romania and Spain). The course combines theory with practical perspectives gained through practical work in pilot plants, visits to production sites and to retailers. This path gives all the essential ingredients for a successful development and it incorporates marketing of local and traditional food products to the global market.
