Food Science Technology Students Tours Malawi Mangoes
Industry tours have been described as key in helping Malawi University of Business and Applied Sciences (MUBAS) students to put theory into practice.
The remarks were made by Dr Madalitso Tsakama, Senior Lecturer in Food Science and Technology, during a recent industry tour by students in the department of Food Science and technology at Malawi Mangoes in Salima District.
Dr Tsakama said the tour was of great essence as it accorded the students a chance to appreciate practical aspects of the theory they undergo in classroom. He added that such practical visits are an integral part of teaching and learning for Food Science and Technology at MUBAS.
The industrial tour saw third year students pursuing Bachelor of Science in Food Science and Technology appreciate the food processing factory at Malawi Mangoes.
The tour was led by Mr Fabiano Chandama, Site Manager and Mr Kenala Tembenuzeni, Quality Assurance Supervisor for Malawi Mangoes. The students interacted with Malawi Mangoes officials who shared their expertise on food processing.
Among the activities students interacted with workers at the company on different practical food processing activities including production and packaging using modern technology.
