50 Years of Massey Food Technology Symposium and Celebration - held on June 30 2014

For five decades Massey has been New Zealand’s leading university for all things food.

Register hereThis year marks the exciting 50th anniversary for our Bachelor of Food Technology (Hons) degree. Its founding in 1964 was a milestone for New Zealand. The degree was the first of its kind, and still today continues to make us the country’s leader in the education of food and biotechnologists.

Over the years Massey has expanded along with New Zealand’s food industry and we now offer our degree in Manawatū, Albany, and Singapore.

Food technology is a core part of Massey’s history and we continue to develop our role in nurturing innovative and smart food and biotechnologists for tomorrow.

This year we are celebrating the success of food technology and invite you to join us. Reunite with former classmates and lecturers, commemorate the past 50 years, learn about future plans, and enjoy a taste of Palmerston North.
