The food industry is the sector that contributes most to gross domestic product in Spain. On the other hand, the lifestyle of today's society demands a variety of foods that are easy to buy and prepare and have a long shelf life. This requires the training of highly qualified professionals in the sector, who must be able to innovate processes and products by bringing together the different aspects that contribute to the success of a food on the market, such as its quality and safety, its health benefits for consumers and also its economic viability.


The aim of this master's degree is to train specialists who are capable of optimising and innovating processes and products, as well as managing by-products and waste from the food industry, providing scientific and technological advice to the food industry and related industries, as well as to consumers, and managing a food industry in all its areas. All this without losing sight of the fundamental aspect of providing consumers with quality, safe and healthy food.
