Camire quoted in WABI report on new online food technology program

WABI (Channel 5) quoted Mary Ellen Camire, a professor of food science and human nutrition at the University of Maine, in a report on a new online program in food technology. UMaine is now offering a 12-credit online graduate program for food and brewing industry professionals through the School of Food and Agriculture. “People always have to eat and today we are seeing, with a global food system, that there are more outbreaks of food-borne illness, people wanting new foods, wanting to have plant-based food, wanting to have local food,” said Camire. “But, there’s not enough people trained in food science and technology to address those concerns and meet the need in food companies. We have a variety of courses that are going to be available so people can take what they feel they need to really get ahead in the job market.”
