The IFT annual meeting and food expo is going on this week in New Orleans.

“Hayley’s passion for dairy foods processing and research, interest in food science and technology, and leadership in numerous career-related extracurricular activities made her an obvious choice for this year’s scholarship,” said Edlong Dairy Technologies CEO Laurette Rondenet-Smith.

In 2013 Hayley assisted in an undergraduate research project that studied consumer reactions to oxidized off-flavors in fluid milk. She is currently working as an undergraduate research assistant in Virginia Tech’s Food Science & Technology department, assisting in research on face-reader reactions to food products and consumer acceptance of food products based on their emotional responses.

Since 2012, Edlong has awarded thousands of dollars in scholarship money to students pursuing a degree in food science with an emphasis on dairy flavors and/or dairy science. The scholarship is funded through Feeding Tomorrow, the Foundation of the Institute of Food Technologists.
