This training programme has been developed by the British Society of Flavourists and the University of Reading (Dept. of Food & Nutritional Sciences), and is supported by the International Federation of Essential Oil and Aroma Trades.
It is run once a year, usually commencing the first week of May. The three-week programme of practical sessions and seminars is given by highly experienced flavourists from industry and university specialists. It is structured around the practical evaluation and formulation of flavourings for food and beverages.
The aim of the course is to provide an understanding of the flavour characteristics of a wide range of compounds and to learn how to incorporate them into flavourings for application in foods. The course is primarily designed for graduates already working in the flavour or food industries seeking to upgrade their skills.
The course has proven extremely popular, attracting delegates from all over the world. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 12 and each year is usually booked-up well in advance, so if you are interested in attending please ensure you reserve your place as early as possible.
Delegates who successfully complete the course are automatically accepted as members of the British Society of Flavourists and given complementary membership for the course year plus one further year.
