Alison Chan- Product Developement Coordinator

Hello! My name is Alison and I am currently in my 4th year of study at UBC, majoring in Food and Nutritional Sciences. Growing up, I have always loved handcrafting things such as holiday cards and clay sculptures. Handmade items bring me so much joy because they are one of a kind and made with authenticity. Volunteering for True NOSH is a pleasure, because seeing all the creativity and thought put into the recipes, label designs of food product is super exciting. I also have an interest in learning more about the chemical properties of different foods and how each ingredient contributes to the final product.
