Over summer, the food processing industry employs university students to provide additional technical resources during a busy time of year, and help with projects that might otherwise be postponed. For the students, the work experience gives them valuable experience implementing the theory they have learnt at university, an insight into the career options available to them once they graduate, and valuable networking opportunities .
