About this class

Reviews of participants from previous editions

  • Francisco Javier Téllez Melgoza, Quality Manager, Barilla México

    The course for me represents a new experience in the knowledge of dry pasta processing with PAVAN technology, I could understand the TAS technology and everything that leads to the development of new products, the scientific aspects and thermodynamic fundamentals for the elaboration of the product. Professionally it has helped me to improve together with the area of technology, production and research and development, the processes and the development of new products.
  • Treigh Stroud, Technology Professional, Barilla America NY Inc. (USA)

    My experience at the Food Tech master was one of the most memorable I have had. The course took you through every aspect of the technology that is out in use right now and the new technology that is being developed. Food tech master also took us through every aspect of the line, from theory to the maintenance of the lines. When I attended the course, I just started the position at my company as the Technologist. This course was essential in my development in my new roll. I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking for a great experience in the process of making pasta and to experience a great company that is teaching the course.
