A BTech Consumer Science student will soon be jetting off to London after delivering an impressive pitch at the recent SA Technology Network student pre-conference workshop.
Keagan Canterbury said the innovation he pitched focused on the development of a functional dairy-based product containing omega-3 fatty acids and carotenes.

It was announced as the best student pitch at the workshop, which was hosted by the Technology Innovation Agency.

“My specific product is a yoghurt-based honey mustard salad dressing that I developed for my Food Science 4 product development assignment. My supervisors are Prof. Maretha Opperman and Mrs Enid Hinrichsen,” said Keagan, who is also a teaching assistant in the Consumer Science Department.

Keagan will be going to London at the end of the year where he will work with and learn from Sherwyn Pillay of Hypergrowth-Buzz. The company specialises in consulting with small businesses to develop them into larger corporations in a small space of time
