Relationships with occupations

Essential knowledge

Processes of foods and beverages manufacturing is an essential knowledge of the following occupations:

Cellar operator: Fermentation cellar operators take charge of fermentation and maturation tanks. They control fermentation process of wort inoculated with yeast. They tend equipment that cools and adds yeast to wort as to produce beer. For the purpose, they control the flow of refrigeration that goes through cool coils regulating the temperature of hot wort in the tanks.
Food technologist: Food technologists develop processes for manufacturing foodstuffs and related products based on chemical, physical, and biological principles and technology. They design and plan layouts or equipment, oversee staff, engage in controlling, and improve food technologies in food production processes.
Beverage filtration technician: Beverage filtration technicians operate machines that clarify beverages prior to filtering. For the purpose, they transfer fermented beverages from settling casks into clarifying tanks and spreads chemicals over the surface of beverages to aid their clarification. Then, they pump beverages to transfer them to filtering tanks.
Food technician: Food technicians assist food technologists in the deveolpment of processes for manufacturing foodstuffs and related products based on chemical, physical, and biological principles. They perform research and experiments on ingredients, additives and packaging. Food technicians also check product quality to ensure compliance with legislation and regulations.
Food grader: Food graders inspect, sort and grade food products. They grade food products according to sensory criteria or with the help of machinery. They determine the product’s use by grading them into the appropriate classes and discarding damaged or expired foods. Food graders measure and weigh the products and report their findings so the food can be further processed.
Cider master: Cider masters envision the manufacturing process of cider. They ensure brewing quality and follow one of several brewing processes. They modify existing brewing formulas and processing techniques in order to develop new cider products and cider-based beverages.
Chocolate moulding operator: Chocolate moulding operators tend machines and equipment that pour tempered chocolate into moulds to form bars, blocks, and other shapes of chococlate. They monitor machines to ensure that moulds do not jam.

Optional knowledge

Processes of foods and beverages manufacturing is optional for these occupations. This means knowing this knowledge may be an asset for career advancement if you are in one of these occupations.

Pasta operator: Pasta operators manufacture dry pasta products. They unload raw ingredients from storage silos and ingredient delivery systems. These operators mix, press, extrude as to reach desired drying levels of pasta.
Sauce production operator: Sauce production operators process, produce and manufacture sauces made from fruits, vegetables, oils and vinegars. They operate machinery and equipment for activities such as mixing, pasteurising and packaging sauces.
Baker: Bakers make a wide range of breads, pastries, and other baked goods. They follow all the processes from receipt and storage of raw materials, preparation of raw materials for bread-making, measurement and mixing of ingredients into dough and proof. They tend ovens to bake products to an adequate temperature and time.

Pasta maker: Pasta makers prepare fresh pasta, fillings, and other types of pasta following specific recipes and processes.
Oenologist: Oenologists track the wine manufacturing process in its entirety and supervise the workers in wineries. They supervise and coordinate production to ensure the quality of the wine and also give advice by determining the value and classification of wines being produced.
Distillery supervisor: Distillery supervisors coordinate the production processes comprised in the production of spirits and manage the workers engaged in the process. They verify distilled liquors being produced at specified amounts and proofs.

Carbonation operator: Carbonation operators perform the injection of carbonation into beverages.
Distillery miller: Distillery millers tend distillery mills in order to clean and grind whole grain for use in production of distilled liquors. They tend cleaning machines to remove impurities from grains followed by the grinding and weighing of grains. They perform daily maintenance on pumps, air-conveyor chutes and machines.

Distillery worker: Distillery workers operate industrial distillery equipment and machinery. They perform the maintenance and cleaning of the machinery, roll barrels, and stamp barrel heads.
Food science lecturer: Food science lecturers are subject professors, teachers, or lecturers who instruct students who have obtained an upper secondary education diploma in their own specialised field of study, food science, which is predominantly academic in nature. They work with their university research assistants and university teaching assistants for the preparation of lectures and of exams, grading papers and exams and leading review and feedback sessions for the students. They also conduct academic research in their field of food science, publish their findings and liaise with other university colleagues.
Yeast distiller: Yeast distillers extract alcohol from yeast to use it in the manufacture of distilled liquors. They weigh yeast quantities and gauge temperature to determine adequate conditions for distillation.

Biochemical engineer: Biochemical engineers research on the field of life science striving for new discoveries. They convert those findings into chemical solutions that can improve the wellbeing of society such as vaccines, tissue repair, crops improvement and green technologies advances such as cleaner fuels from natural resources.
Liquor blender: Liquor blenders regauge, filter, rectify, blend and verify proof of alcoholic drinks before these are prepared for bottling. For the purpose, they tend equipment and machinery to perform each one of these processes.
Bioengineer: Bioengineers combine state of the art findings in the field of biology with engineering logics in order to develop solutions aimed at improving the well-being of society. They can develop improvement systems for natural resource conservation, agriculture, food production, genetic modification, and economic use.
Pastry maker: Pastry makers prepare and bake cakes, cookies, croissants, pies and alike products according to recipes.
