Dude, it's all about food!

General description

Have you ever wondered what the main thing that connects every student around the globe is? Besides the fact that we are all humans and that we have to study… Yes, you’re right, we all love FOOD! Chocolates, candies and cookies – just a few things that always bring us together, but have you ever thought about how they’re produced? We’ve all been there, when we just start to read some random ingredients on the food packages, but would you actually like to know what do they really mean? What kind of technology is used during the production processes of a food item from its first stages to the finished product? What influence do they have on your health and body? Hungry? Interested? That’s why this course is the BEST for you! In addition to food, we promise more than 30 amazing lecture hours, some very meritorical company visits, new friends from all around Europe, 11 days of foodelicious fun and a little bit of love for each and every single one of you from your lovely orgaNiCERs! Remember, with us you won’t be bored, hungry or thirsty!
