Food Technology Facilities

Regency International Centre’s food processing equipment and laboratories are unique and unavailable in any other teaching institution in South Australia. These facilities enable students to learn how to prepare, process, package and label food to industry standards in quantities much larger than are generally made in any educational environment.

The food technology program’s specialist facilities include:

  • Brewery
  • Cheese room
  • Distillery
  • General food processing facility
  • Analytical laboratory
  • Sensory analysis laboratory
  • Microbiology laboratory
  • New product development laboratory

RIC’s production equipment and quality control mechanisms are larger than conventional pilot scale operations.

These systems serve as excellent industry standard models. The food produced is of the highest quality and is sold through numerous retail outlets.

Our analytical, sensory and microbiological laboratories are also of industry standard and permit all relevant analyses to be performed by the students.
