How to Be a Food Tester


Food manufacturers employ testers to sample items from various batches on various days to make sure the quality, taste and texture remain the same for each package. Become a food tester and sample food for a living.

  • Apply for position of food tester at any food manufacturing company. You must be at least 18 and have a high school education for an entry-level position. This involves tasting a sample of the food.

  • Enjoy the food that you are testing. For example, if you apply to be a chocolate food tester, then you do need to like chocolate. You can sample many pieces of whatever food it is, so this is a very important consideration.

  • Taste the food sample as part of your food tester duties. After you taste it, you must write a report on your findings. Sometimes you tell another person how it tastes, and that person writes the report.

  • Take you job position very seriously. Many people think this sounds like a fun job and it is, but it's very important work as well. The company relies on you to provide accurate information so it can make a better product.

  • Weigh, measure and perform other simple tests on food. Taking a sample of it is part of your job, but you also must answer questions about what it looks like, what color it is and other qualities the food may have.
