Do you want access to world-class food industry professionals as employees?

The food industry often has trouble finding staff competent in food packaging processes and design, including new product design. It’s time the industry takes some responsibility for this issue and invests in the training of staff. If future employees finish their education well prepared to enter the workforce the whole industry will benefit.

And now there is a simple way your company can contribute to this.

The University of Melbourne and the Australian Institute of Packaging are looking for companies willing to engage students from the Master of Food and Packaging Innovation (MFPI) for industry internships in 2018.

The MFPI is a unique postgraduate degree that encompasses food science, food safety, packaging materials and processes, packaging design, consumer behaviour, product innovation, entrepreneurship, business management and marketing.

MFPI interns are highly motivated and ready to tackle whatever tasks given to them. This internship provides a great opportunity for companies to receive some extra help with research or projects that they are having difficulty finding the time or resources to complete. In addition, the interns bring with them a fresh pair of eyes that can inspire new ideas and help to problem solve.

Not only that, taking an MFPI intern provides an ideal opportunity to assess potential future employees.

MFPI students are required to undertake 120–200 hours of work as part of their internship. These hours can be taken over weeks or months, depending on the needs of the company.
