Food Technology

Food Technology.

Our food technology program provides students with a strong foundation in basic science and food science, but we do not stop there. By being industry-oriented, we are constantly pushing our students to apply theory to real-life situations, so that they are fully ready to contribute back to the industry when they graduate, either by starting up their own businesses or working in leading food companies around the globe. Our Food Technology Study Program is one of seven undergraduate study programs in the Faculty of Science and Technology, Universitas Pelita Harapan which has mandate and responsibility to apply and develop food science and technology i.e. food chemistry and analysis, food microbiology and safety, food processing and engineering, food biochemistry and nutrition, and applied food science as well as life skills.

1ST WINNERS ON THE 4TH FQBC 2017

UPH Food Technology students won 1st place at The 4th INDONESIAN FOOD QUIZ BOWL COMPETITION 2016-2017. This competition is a biennial event held since 2011 by the Indonesian Food Care Student Association (HMPPI) in collaboration with the Indonesian Food Technology Expert Association (PATPI), and its year’s theme was “Integration for Sustainable Development”. One of the agendas of this competition is the selection of an Indonesian delegation for the ASEAN Undergraduate Food 2017 Quiz Bowl Competition in Vietnam in November 2017 held in the framework of The 15th ASEAN Food Conference 2017.

The UPH Food Technology Team consisted of Riviana Susanto, Jessica Chandra, Christopher I. Rimba, and Marshal Nathan. UPH faced 12 teams from 7 universities, including Universitas Sriwijaya, Universitas Sumatera Utara, Universitas Pelita, Institute Pertanian Bogor, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Universitas Katolik Widaya Mandala Surabaya, and Universitas Mulawarman. Chosen as a winner at the national level, the UPH Team departed to represent Indonesia in the ASEAN level competition.

FIRST WINNER AT "3RD INDONESIAN FOOD BOWL QUIZ 2015"

The Indonesian Food Technology Association (PATPI) in collaboration with the Indonesian Food Care Student Association (HMPPI), again held the “3rd Indonesian Food Bowl quiz Competition”. The event consisted of seminar and talk show about food technology as well as quiz competition on food science, with the aim of creating togetherness between food technology students and raising awareness of food technology students on national food security.

UPH won the first place, after at the first and second Food Bowl Quiz winning first and second place. While their toughest opponents, IPB, won the second place and UGM won the third place. “We were very surprised. IPB, at the beginning, has scared us by sending 24 teams to advance at regional selection. But it turned out that, thank God, we managed to defeat them,” Sharon said.

THE 2ND WINNER IN THE NFTC 2014

The UPH Food Technology Team won 2nd place in the National Food Technology Competition (NFTC). The UPH team consisted of three Food Technology students of the 2011 class, namely Isabella Supardi, Sabrina Yoshe, and Valentina Jasmine. The team submitted a paper entitled Utilization of Cambodian Flower Sandalwood (Plumeria rubra f. Lutea) in ‘Herbal Tea’ products. The Winners got cash prize.

NFTC is a series of national level scientific workshops and competitions that focus on food issues in Indonesia. The theme raised at the year’s NFTC was “Increasing Food Security through Food Product Diversification”. This was motivated by the condition of Indonesia’s high population growth and if it was not anticipated it could lead to a food crisis. One of the prevention efforts was to strengthen food security through diversification of food products by utilizing various types of foodstuffs.
