"A nutritionist must have a fairly broad knowledge of alternative nutrition in order to be able to give targeted advice to customers. Nowadays you can find a web of information on the internet in which many things contradict each other. When someone presents a diploma from your school, we know they have the essential knowledge." - employerSpeaks

Today we see the concept of 'flexitarians' coming back more and more. These are people who eat less meat within our Western society. Since the beginning of this century these people consciously choose not to eat meat a few days a week. Almost all major food distributors in Europe and North America now sell organic food under their private labels and it is expected that these chains will continue to gain market share.

Solutions for problems such as overpopulation and environmental pollution related to food production are being sought nowadays. They are currently working on the production of cultured meat. This is meat that is produced in a lab and is based on the stem cells of animals. So it is not real meat, but a vegetable substitute. In order to improve the traceability of food products, scientists are working on a kind of genetic 'fingerprint' that allows the origin of a product to be traced in just a few minutes.

"I followed the training alternative nutritionist at your school. I am very satisfied with it myself! The teacher was very friendly and always ready to help me. I learned a lot more about the body's energy needs, but also about the nutrients that contribute to this." - exStudentSpeaking
