Institute of Food Processing Technology will be open to visitors during Doors Open Waterloo Region | Arctic & Nordic : Business Potential                              in Arctic and Northern Europe | Scoop.it

"The new campus, including the processing plant, will be open to the public for this year's Doors Open Waterloo Region event on Saturday, Sept. 21.

 

The 8,000-square-foot, $5-million plant is inside the college's Engineering and Information Technology campus, located at 850 Fountain St. S., Cambridge, across Highway 401 from the main Doon campus.

 

The food processing industry has gone a long way in terms of automation and robotics. There's a lot of automation in the food processing industry and the current workforce is aging and did not grow up with computers. So what we try to do is train our students in the operation and maintenance of this very high-tech equipment.""
