The Activity
Tutors will be involved in an accelerated version of “The Food for Thought” activity.
A simulation exercise, providing a condensed look at the learning and decision making involved
in the development of a new food product.

The purpose of this morning will be to give tutors an idea of how this exercise can help
students develop their understanding of:
   • How food is produced on farms and in factories.
   • The human, animal and environmental impact of food production, packaging and
      transport.
   • Personal organisational values and ethics.
   • How teams within organisations have to work together to achieve their goals.
   • How external events, beyond the control of the organisation, have an impact on
      decisions.
   • How compromises have to be made to achieve tasks within budget.

This activity would involve students working in teams, taking on the role of buyers,
suppliers, marketing and technologists. Together they would follow the product
development process from farm to supermarket shelf.
