About

The Future Food Sustainability programme offered by the Cranfield University will inspire you to make an important mitigating contribution and reduce the impact that Climate Change is and will be having on food chains in the future.

Overview

The Future Food Sustainability programme offered by the Cranfield University is concerned with a fundamental challenge of enormous importance that we all face today; in essence, the many problems of feeding a rapidly growing global population in the future given finite resources, added uncertainties such as the effects of climate change, and a general acknowledgement that our current methods for producing food are not fit for purpose. 

But it does more than simply describing the challenge - it sets about bringing together the diverse threads that could present pragmatic and practical answers. As such, it is designed to respond to urgent industry, institutional and government needs for individuals who can meet the complex, multi-factorial issues of global future food supply.

Why this course?

Many food companies have identified the need for a focus in their own business areas on future food sustainability, and have acknowledged a need for trained individuals, both in the form of new graduates and also in re-training  professionals already established in the food industry. However, it is not just food companies that are concerned with the sustainability of future food supply;

  • government departments are concerned with food sustainability in terms of policy making and governance
  • research institutes are actively involved in the development of improved animal and plant production systems
  • various NGOs are involved  in influencing policy, attitudes and communication to the public.

Careers

Successful, motivated graduates from this course are expected to move swiftly into positions within food businesses, government, NGOs and research companies/institutes to engage in roles involving research, management, governance, communication and social responsibility. 

Specific relevant job roles may include: technical managers, sustainability managers, technical development managers, product technologists, resilience officers, supply chain/logistics analysts, commodity analysts, regulatory affairs advisers, and policy officers.
