CIFST held its SECOND ANNUAL Marvin Tung Student Case Competition at the 2023 Canadian Food Summit on Wednesday, June 7th. The purpose of the competition is to provide emerging professionals with an opportunity to showcase their knowledge and skills and learn from each other through the analysis of a food sector case study. The primary objective of the case competition is to foster innovative thinking about a real-world problem while allowing students to hone their skills and network with their peers.
Thank you to the Canadian Food Innovation Network (CFIN), sponsors of the Marvin Tung Student Case Competition.
