The Certificate in New Zealand Food Knowledge: from local to global (Micro-credential) offers learners the opportunity to analyse the foundations and growth of New Zealand food exports along with parallel developments of ingredients and food products used in professional kitchens of hospitality businesses.
An analysis of food systems offers a more detailed understanding of how food products are developed. These range from agricultural practices to technological innovation; from international trade agreements to astute marketing strategies.
This micro-credential will look at contemporary issues relevant to New Zealand's food systems and examine local and international case studies, the influences on food choices in our communities and the power of marketing on consumer choice decisions.
An underlying theme also highlights linkages between consumer choice and sustainable food practices.
Dr Tracy Berno will teach this program.
