Taste Your Future bursary contest!

Food and Beverage Ontario (FBO), through the Taste Your Future Program, is engaging young people to think of the food and beverage processing sector as an exciting sector for employment.

Guelph, Ont. – Food and Beverage Ontario (FBO) is looking to attract more young people to the food and beverage processing sector through its Taste Your Future program.

The Taste Your Future Bursary Contest kicked off Jan. 30 and will celebrate students with their innovative ideas on how they can contribute to the food and beverage sector.

There are two categories in the contest: Makers and Designers; and Scientists, Programmers and Engineers. Both categories are open to a high school stream and a post-secondary stream. Students can enter individually or as a team of up to four students.

The “Maker and Designer” category is for students with an idea for a new food or beverage product. The “Scientist, Programmer and Engineer” category is for students with an idea for a new process, software application, tool or machinery for food and beverage processing.

Winners in each category will be awarded $2,000, industry mentorship, resume coaching and tickets to the 2017 FBO annual meeting for added industry recognition.
