Oilseed Sector

In this GCFSI center-led project, students from the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources will be placed in six-month internships at key oilseed companies to help guide curriculum changes at LUANAR.


Project Team: Leslie Bourquin and Deepa Thiagarajan

Students from the Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR) are being placed in six-month internships at key oilseed companies. Their experiences are expected to shed light on desirable curriculum changes at LUANAR. GCFSI is developing a “value added” collaboration by having MSU food science faculty members support the identification of food safety skill needs, and by suggesting training courses to provide these skills, based on prior experience with such workforce development assessments.
