I'm an SQFP in the fresh vegetable producing and packaging sector.
I'm not sure if this question is applicable to this forum or if I should post it elsewhere, but I'm looking at potentially accepting a position as a food lab technician at a confectionery facility, and I'm not super familiar with the day to day specifics involved in this position, so I was hoping there may be a few lab techs here who could help me out. I've got a meeting this week where I will be given the opportunity to ask a few questions, and I'm just trying to think about what I should be asking.
Given that I know very little about what lab equipment is commonly used in this position, I'm also hoping someone can give me some pointers on where to do some research to familiarize myself with this type of equipment. I'd like to learn as much as possible about it. I assume viscosity will be measured and maybe TSS?, as well as allergen sampling and perhaps some testing for nutritional values?
Going from fresh vegetables to confectionery is a big step for me.
