Employment for food technologists is expected to grow by 9 percent through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, or about as fast as the average for all careers. The food industry is one of the largest industries in the United States and throughout the world. Because people have to eat, there will always be a need for people to develop, test, and process food products. In developed countries, the ever-present consumer demand for new and different food products means that food technologists will always be in demand.
