Student Product Development Competition

The Student Association Product Development Competition will take place at Cereals & Grains 20!


The Student Association Product Development Competition (PDC) is organized by students and sponsored by Cereals & Grains Association corporate member organizations. The PDC provides a great opportunity for students to apply knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to create food products for the real world. The competition encourages innovative thinking and promotes the connection between academic research and industrial production. Students work individually or in teams to develop a novel food product containing at least one major cereal/legume ingredient.

Theme: Value Added Products from Food Waste

Food waste can come from any type of food. The goal of the PDC this year is to make the biggest and most sustainable environmental impact. Therefore, you would have to state how you make the most of the food waste stream you have selected.
