This module challenges the student to think of a potential ‘new’ food concept. Much of the research in conducted in the kitchen with students trialing their ideas and trying to turn them into a potentially commercially viable product. Classes are held to encourage students to research and think of diverse ideas. A final product is delivered to a panel of industry professionals to assess.

There is a need for managers and leaders in businesses to be able to explain, develop, apply and implement the strategic management process in order to achieve competitive advantage. This module will equip students with the perspectives necessary to carry out effective strategic analysis of organisations to both achieve and sustain that competitive advantage.
This module focuses on the analysis of the food supply chain system. We consider how food today reaches the marketplace and how the political, environmental, economic and social and legal factors influence that journey. Students will gain an understanding of how the justice and integrity of our food system are affected.
In this module, we consider how food is communicated to us, by us and through us to others. We consider the culture of food and how it is portrayed by the media, politicians and by countries, religions, castes and genders. We challenge the student to make a short film that sums up her/his attempt to communicate something important to them about food.
