What is involved in this all process and this master are perfect to know more about the food chain, to be more efficient and sustainable to ensure for the future that we have food enough for the all world.
For the third semester, I am here in ISARA for studying the all sustainable development within the food industry. We started the semester with a trip in Italy visiting different food industries, cheese production, ham production, flour production… and a big company like Lavazza. We had a big range of companies from small companies to bigger company so we could have a good insight on how they produced their food as well as the sustainability behind it. »
Ohemaa Achiaa AGBOLOSOO-MENSAH, Ghana (Promotion 3)
« I Studied for my bachelor, agriculture : crop science, animal science, social science, economics and horticulture.
After my bachelor, I decided to be more specific and to move in just one direction. I decided to focus on organic agriculture, but during my research for my master, I thought there was something more than organic wich is called sustainability, bringing me to study the all food systems.
For my third semester, I am studying at ISARA, in France. Last week, we visited Italy, Parm and Torino, meeting big industrial companies like Lavazza and ham industry. Very interesting because it was an opportunity to do the link with what I had studied on food quality, from production to consumers. I could meet industry’s players, ask questions and put my knowledge into practice.
I was happy to have knowledge in pur agriculture and move on sustainability and undestand food indutries and see what goes on in there. »

« I studied for my bachelor in agri industry engineering and agri business in Lima. I decided to come at Isara to study master in sustainability which is nowadays a trending regarding good health, good food and good production. I like this master because you are in different places. The first year I studied in Germany, in the university of Kassel and Fulda. I studied for one year sustainable supply chain.
I travelled a lot with this master, and with Isara we went to Italy for the course, Sustainable development in Food Industries. It was great, we all know that Italy has a really long history regarding food culture. I thought it was very interesting to notice how the indutries are nowadays concerned by sustainability from small size companies to bigger one.
Passioned by food, I am so glad to be in France. I can eat everyday cheese, saucisson and bred which I love so much.»
