Tom Sanders [BSc(Hons) Biological Science 2006] works as an Applications Manager for Tate & Lyle Sugar. By his own admission, Tom’s initial move into food manufacture was not a long-held ambition – he was contacted by a recruiter when he shared his CV online. Since then, however, he has worked for four major food companies in a variety of roles. Tom emphasised how valued a scientific background was within the industry, and how much science was involved in perfecting even relatively straightforward products like bread. He described a broad range of jobs within the food production sector. A transcript of his talk is here.
