Food and Consumer Management BSc (Hons)

The pure variety of UCB’s Food and Consumer Management course makes it the best food-related course that you could take as there are so many areas covered. Everyone is happy to be on the course because they love food and want to work hard to succeed. 

I now work at E. E. & Brian Smith Ltd, a fruit import agent. My main role is in Business Development, getting new customers for the company to supply and manage. I also do account management for suppliers from overseas; getting the costs for the product and the transport, adding a nice margin and sending the quotes out. I’ve already travelled around the country to places like Scotland (Baxters) and London (Fine Foods Exhibition). 

I have recently travelled to Holland to see the production of pickled products and then to Paris, France for the Sial Food Industry Exhibition to meet suppliers and buyers, network, and drink some wine. I’ve also been to Spain to see fruit production where they purée products for jams and similar products.
