Unique Advanced Master of Sustainable Food Packaging starts in September 2022

(27-07-2022) The new Advanced Master’s programme Sustainable Food Packaging at Ghent University prepares students and professionals to become experts in sustainable food packaging systems.

A world without packaging is unthinkable. It offers numerous advantages in terms of hygiene, food safety, transport, reduction of food waste, etc., but the current impact of certain materials and uses on the environment is too big and unsustainable.

Ghent University therefore wants to stimulate a switch towards 100% reusable, recyclable, compostable or biodegradable packaging, and prepare students to become experts in sustainable food packaging systems.

The MSc in Sustainable Food Packaging brings the three domains (Sustainability, Food & Packaging) together and prepares recent graduates, professionals, and international students to design and/or optimise a food packaging system with a conscious and critical choice of resources and production methods, while at the same time considering the corporate or organisational culture, its mission and vision, and the broad socio-economic context.

In general, any highly motivated candidate with a master’s degree, a keen interest in Sustainability, Food and Packaging, and sufficient background in chemistry and mathematics can be admitted.

Apply before 1 August 2022.
