Food Science students shortlisted for international product development competition

A team of students studying BSc (Hons) Food Science and Technology at NTU have been shortlisted for the UK final of Ecotrophelia 2019, an international product development competition.


The team is made up of four students, Isabel Lorenzo Hernandez, Bethany Sayers, Sarah Kelly and Peter Jordan and they have been mentored by Food Science lecturer Jess Cash.

Their product, Caruffle, is a truffle made from carob and hazelnut, with a mixed fruit jelly centre and rolled in popped and ground quinoa.

Ecotrophelia is an annual Europe-wide Dragon’s Den style competition that challenges student teams to develop the best eco-innovative food products. The team will present their product and business plan to industry leaders at the UK final on 11 and 12 June 2019 at Campden BRI.
