Food Technology Internship (plant-based seafood)

9th May, 2022

The internship

Early Adopters and Innovators, listen up! Do you want to work for a better world and cleaner oceans? Do you also think we need a better way to produce food for future generation? Work on something that has a huge impact (and is awesome) with REVO FOODS (www.revo-foods.com)!

We at Revo Foods believe in a world where we can produce fish and meat without polluting the environment or exploiting animals. How we do it? By using 3D Food Printing of plant-based meats. With this technology, we produce the “fish of tomorrow”, without overfishing or bycatch of whales and dolphins.

We offer interested interns and students a master thesis project on product development or basic research from September 2022 (4-6 months, depending on interest) in Vienna, Austria.

Possible topics include:

  • Test different ingredient and product formulations for plant-based salmon and tuna
  • Test different protein sources (soy, pea, rice, potato, lupin etc.) for their gelation characteristics and texturizing properties
  • Use 3D Food Printing to test different formulations
  • Optimize sensory properties (color, flavor, smell) of our products
  • Optimize texture and mouthfeel (e.g. by using our texture analyzer)
  • Optimize nutritional composition
  • Work on novel product categories

Key responsibilities:

  • Perform food-tech related tasks, including the development of different recipes
  • Optimize food formulation and test new ingredients
  • Food Analysis Methods (Texture Analyzer, Rheometer, Color Measurement, Density Measurement…)
  • Operate a 3D food printer together with our technicians to test the formulations in an extrusion-based process

Education and experience:

We are looking for a student with a passion for food tech and meat alternatives, that wants to use his knowledge to develop amazing new vegan seafood products. The student should have knowledge in one or more of the following areas:

  • Extrusion Technology (Dry-, or High Moisture)
  • 3D Food Printing
  • Meat alternatives
  • Plant-based product formulation
  • Texture Analysis
  • Food Process Engineering
  • Food ingredient functionality
  • Plant protein texturization

Apart from that you are:

  • Living in Vienna or ready to move here (voted most livable city in the world for 10 consecutive years).
  • Speaking fluent English
  • Friendly and communicative
  • Able to multitask and work independently

What we offer:

  • Great team full of engaged people and a centrally located office
  • Chance to shape a better and more sustainable future
  • Flexible working hours
  • Regular after work team events
  • Benefits such as public transport ticket, fruit basket, free drinks and great team buildings
