_1AW2622

The gloves are off and the oven mitts are on!

Join us at noon on Friday, March 20, to watch the University of Manitoba Food Science students present their new food product concepts that they have taken from drawing board to test kitchen.

Seven student teams will “pitch” their product ideas and provide a product sample to a panel of judges, consisting of: Judy Wilson, Asper School of Business; Jason Wortzman, Manitoba Food Processors Association; and Doug Speirs, the Winnipeg Free Press.

The students will talk about their choice of unique ingredients and flavours, the markets they are targeting, food processing and food safety considerations, and packaging and shelf life of their novel products.

Come watch the fun – and the products you see may be the next new thing on the grocery store shelf!
