Food: there is no other product in the world that everyone uses and buys daily. Food influences who we are cause political conflicts, but also brings people together. For decades, food has been abundant for many people in this world, yet has not been appreciated thus. In an ever-changing world with a growing population, we will need more food every decade.

Do you want to create food products or services in the food business that will make a difference? Opt for the course Food Entrepreneurship.
