I am originally from Finland, where I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Food Technology and a Master’s in Cereals Science. Prior to that I was contemplating becoming a teacher but was drawn to food science because of my interest in science, the dynamic nature of the industry, the potential to develop and how it impacted on people’s lives.

Christina DietzWhen I chose subjects for my A-levels, I was 100% sure that I wanted to become an architect. Six months later, during an internship for the upper secondary school, I discovered this was definitely not what I wanted and that I better look for another career path. I spent my childhood on my parents’ and grandparents’ farms. My grandparents had a guest house and I had been involved in farming and cooking even before I went to secondary school.
