Topic: Why am I a Career Food Scientist?

2015 Distinguished Achievement Awardee

The Southern California section of Institute of Food Technologists honors Phillip S. Tong, Ph.D,, with its 2015 Distinguished Achievement Award. Dr. Tong was selected for his dedication, unique service to IFT, and supreme effort on behalf of the food industry and its related businesses. This yearly award honors an individual who has provided continuing and meritorious service to the food science and technology industry, particularly in the southwest United States.

Not everyone can say they've spent over 30 years studying, researching, teaching and developing dairy foods like Phillip S. Tong, Ph.D. For half a life time, he has forged a career with rewards and challenges surrounding cow's milk and the tasty products that come from Mother Nature's nearly perfect food. Dr. Tong will relay anecdotes of his hours in food science as a scientific lecturer, mentor, writer, publisher and motivator. His reflections during the evening presentation will inspire other food scientists to consider how they also approach their daily challenges and pivotal career decisions. Dr. Tong puts it all into context: is food science a job or a profession or a career? Or an out-right adventure!
