The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the food industry in interesting ways: food supply chains have been disrupted, the food service industry has had to adapt or redirect, and many are cooking at home more. As Virginia and the country begin to reopen, we consider how will this affect the landscape of our lives.
Speakers: Tech on Tap has invited faculty from the Virginia Tech department of Food Science and Technology for a round up of their insights into topics that are particularly salient these days.
- Robert C. Williams, Professor and Virginia Cooperative Extension Food Microbiologist
