Loughry food students have recipe for success

Published 22/06/2012

Honours degree food graduates Gemma Donaldson and Nicola Gillespie have plenty of cause for celebration at Loughry Campus awards ceremony.

The students are among 100 to graduate today from the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) with qualifications in food.

Gemma graduated with a first-class honours degree in food technology and is taking up employment with Glanbia Cheese, working within their newly-developed graduate management scheme.

Nicola graduated with a first-class honours degree in food design and nutrition and is commencing employment with Dale Farm in Ballymena, working within its technical department there.

Gemma said: “The food industry has lots to offer graduates with the right qualifications and experience. We both benefited from industry-sponsored bursaries during our course and these have given us great work experience opportunities and our first step on the career ladder. Loughry Campus offers great facilities in food and its courses are an ideal starting point for anyone who is seeking to secure a job in the food industry.”
