Food science is a broad major. Which path are you interested in taking? It would really depend on the path you are looking to be on as to whether or not it would require a lot of travel. There are some careers that would require constant travels, while others may be more stationary.


I believe that once you narrow do the path you would to pursue within food science, it will allow you to better know any travel requirements.

When I've reviewed many job postings in the Food Sciences I have found that most of them are not travel jobs and do not require traveling. The positions that do the most traveling are people in sales, consulting, auditing, traveling inspectors (such as for the FDA), technical sales, supply chain quality assurance, and business development. Most of the jobs I've seen on job search websites or on LinkedIn in the Food Sciences are Quality Assurance and Research and Development. Traditionally these jobs are in a fixed location with limited travel.
