About Food Hygiene
Master degrees in Food Hygiene equip postgraduates with the skills to maintain and promote human health, through the clean and sanitary handling of food. They may focus on the production, storage and preparation of food in a range of commercial (or domestic) scenarios.
Related subjects include Food & Beverage Production. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Food Science or Agriculture.
Food Hygiene is essential in securing the safety and quality of the food we consume every day. From the systems related to pre- and post-harvest processes, to the distribution of food after manufacture, it is important that food is protected at each stage of its production.
It is to this end that you will examine the relationship between food and public health – including the scientific, technical and legislative factors which influence food safety.
For example, you may investigate food law and the differences between policies of food safety regulation across different countries. Alternatively, you may analyse matters such as global food security, including the protection of food from diseases and preventing the spread of epidemics such as swine flu.
Careers may include smaller-scale roles in health and safety monitoring, public policy and food regulation.

This. postgraduate course. provides relevant, up-to-date experience of food safety management, which is of vital importance both to organisations and individuals in the food industry, enforcement and education.
Through this course you’ll explore 21st century food manufacturing techniques and develop your understanding of how the biochemical properties of food components influence how foods taste and feel, and their impact on nutrition and health.
Food is necessary for human survival, is an important source of pleasure, and plays an enormous role in the global economy. Microbes play an essential role in food preservation and safety, food for health and food biotechnology.
Areas of research include, but are not limited to. pre-harvest stress on ascorbic acid content in baby leaf spinach; the impact of post anthesis rainfall on the production and distribution of fusarium mycotoxins in wheat; minimising post-harvest losses in radishes.
The MSc in Advanced Food Safety is tailored towards students who aim to, or currently work within the agri-food industry and related sectors, offering a unique qualification in the fields of food safety and security.
