Our current food system is driven by several factors, one of the most important being the consumer. Diverse consumer needs have resulted in changes to food systems (i.e. globalisation), and many challenges exist in balancing consumer demand with health, societal needs, population growth and environmental pressures. This course will focus on the unique interaction between the consumer and our food system, culture and food industry, both within Australia and globally. We will explore the influence of culture on dietary patterns and international trends in food consumption, how the food system and food industry respond to consumer demand, and discuss topical global nutrition issues. This course will also focus on developing appropriate cross cultural communication skills.
