Why choose this specification?
Our Edexcel A level Food Technology specification will give your students a knowledge and understanding of the food industry and develop their skills in designing food products that are fit for purpose, satisfy wants or needs, and enhance our day-to-day lives.
It covers key areas including quality, processing, packaging and labelling, health and nutrition, health and safety and, importantly, sustainability. The course recognises that new products have to provide solutions rather than add to the existing problems of use of natural resources, pollution and disposal of waste products.
