The Food Science and Technology CDE requires students to have an in-depth understanding of food product development and presentation, and food safety issues. Participants use their sensory skills to solve problems and make sound decisions. They will compete for the National Title the last week of October.

This is the third time in four years that the Anderson County FFA has won this FFA contest with different students each year.
