McGill's Food Science Association is a student-based group representing the McGill Food Science department with the mission of sharing our knowledge and passion for food with our peers, all while promoting our field of study. The FSA organizes a variety of events that allow both undergraduate and graduate Food Science students, who are all automatically enrolled in the FSA, to mingle in a social context.


The FSA has hosted a variety of exciting events over the years, from apple picking outings to guest speakers and molecular gastronomy workshops. These events allow both undergraduate and graduate Food Science students, who are all automatically enrolled in the FSA, to mingle in a social context and form a tight-knit group. The FSA also encourages students to participate in various career-oriented events such as the CIFST Suppliers Night, hosted by the Canadian Institute of Food Science and Technology. These events allow students to develop their networking skills and get a sense of the many career possibilities in the food industry.


Overall, the McGill Food Science Association hopes to make this upcoming year one to be remembered. Please feel free to approach any member of our committee if you have any questions, suggestions or ideas, we love to have your input!
