It was a great honour to be a part of the Faculty-Led International Program #FLIPPERU organized by #centennialcollege. Group of 10 students from the Food Science Technology department along with a professor and chairperson started the trip. The program involved setting up a pilot plant at IESTP, ILLIMO by applying our technical knowledge in real-time and helping them in designing the process flow for dairy and Jam products, developing #SSOPs, #GMPs and providing recommendations for all the #prerequisite programs. We also got the opportunity to meet the Ministry of Education, Lima and Regional Governor of Lambayeque. Apart from this, field tour to Banana plantation, Guinea Pig farm, Apicola Apiculture, Agro farms were the highlight which gave us practical knowledge about the food industries.
Through this great opportunity, I gained technical knowledge and most importantly learnt to work with a team of 10 students from different parts of the country and achieve a common goal.
Apart from all the technical experience, it was a fun-filled trip visiting museums and understanding their civilization, enjoyed with the group at Lima and Chiclayo beaches, buying souvenirs from local markets and most importantly exploring the local Peruvian food.
Thank you @centennial_sage #SaGEJourneys for providing such a wonderful opportunity. Many thanks to #Professor Xavier Aguirre and #Chair Steve Boloudakis for organizing and helping us, without their support this trip wouldn’t be possible. Special mention to the Illimo, Peruvian partners for their hospitality and kindness. #GlobalExperience
