Food and nutrition is a rapidly growing global industry. If you want to be a part of it, Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Food and Nutrition Management program will fit you to a tee.


The Food and Nutrition Management program from Saskatchewan Polytechnic develops skills in all three areas—food, nutrition and management. This opens doors to careers in food and nutrition in hotels, restaurants, hospitals, post-secondary institutions, remote mine sites and more.

Food and Nutrition Management is a nationally accredited two-year diploma program offered at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Saskatoon Campus . Build practical, hands-on knowledge and skills in food, nutrition and management, including:

  • basic cooking and food preparation
  • food service and customer relations skills
  • coordination of catering and cafeteria promotions
  • management and marketing skills
  • menu planning
  • nutrition and special diets
  • participating on health care teams

Our Kitchen is Your Classroom

Hands-on training in food preparation and cooking is an important part of the program. As a supervisor or manager, you need to know food service from both sides of the “house.”

Put Nutrition on the Menu

Your practical training in nutrition includes nutritional assessment, menu planning and writing specialized diets as part of overall health treatment plans.

Get Real-World Experience

A practical experience in your second year provides on-the-job training in food and nutrition management in acute care, long term care and/or commercial settings. You’ll also polish your management skills during a one-month project at Le Bistro, the popular coffee shop on Saskatoon Campus.
