Sanjay Tandan

When Sanjay Tandan was young, he wanted to be a doctor. That dream didn’t happen as he’d planned, exactly, but he sees a lot of similarities between his original goals and his role as an operations manager/food scientist for a dairy processing company because both rely on science. As a food scientist, he says there’s a huge amount of responsibility and accountability to ensure that customers get a safe product. “In one way, I still look after the health of people through the food they consume on a daily basis by ensuring they get safe, healthy and nutritious products.”
