Food Science in Cambodia
The agricultural sector continues to contribute to Cambodia’s economic development and the products of this sector are increasing year after year. However, some farmers experience a lack of demand for their product, leading to products either rotting away after not being bought or being purchased at low prices that make profit nearly impossible. Development of the food industry is essential. This paper examines how the development of food science and the role of R&D in the food industry could positively impact the agriculture sector.
