Fermented Food and Beverages
About this subject
Upon successful completion of this subject, the student should be able to:
- Discuss the affordances of fermented food and drink through a chemical and social perspective.
- Describe the fermentation process to produce fermented food or drink.
- Develop a business model for a novel fermented food or drink product which incorporates the product's value proposition, value chain and relevant food safety standards and regulations.
- Refer to MyLO for study topics
Tasmania has a growing reputation as a gourmet paradise, with high quality primary products and a growing fermented food and drink industry. In this subject, students will learn about the full production life cycle for fermented food and drink, from growing raw materials and fermentation basics, through to the packaging, labelling, distribution, and marketing of final products. Development of more fermentation businesses in Tasmania may offer an alternative to current problems of an economy reliant on extraction, high agricultural food waste, and over-reliance on State-based employment (Tasmania: The Tipping Point, 2013).
While staff from the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture drive this subject, expert input and content has been sourced across a range of fermentation industries so all students will have access to a wide range of other online materials. Assessment is 100% internal (i.e., no exam) and structured to encourage you to actively engage with ideas and issues and learn collaboratively.

Single subject FAQs
Single subjects are the individual components that make up a degree. With Open Universities Australia, you’re able to study many of them as stand-alone subjects, including postgraduate single subjects, without having to commit to a degree.
Each of your subjects will be held over the course of a study term, and they’ll usually require 10 to 12 hours of study each week. Subjects are identified by a title and a code, for example, Developmental Psychology, PSY20007.
First, find the degree that you would like to study on our website.
If that degree allows entry via undergraduate subjects, there will be information about this under the Entry Requirements section. You will find a list of 2-4 open enrolment subjects you need to successfully complete to qualify for admission into that qualification.
Once you pass those subjects, you will satisfy the academic requirements for the degree, and you can apply for entry.
Our student advisors are here to help you take that next step, so don’t hesitate to reach out when you’re ready! We’ve also made it easier to figure out the right way to get started on our pathways page.
When you’ve made your choice, click ‘Enrol now’ on the relevant course page and follow the prompts to begin your enrolment. We’ll ask you to supply some supporting documentation, including proof of your identity, your tax file number, and a unique student identifier (USI) during this process.
Your university will get in touch with you via email to confirm whether or not your application has been successful.
If you get stuck at any time, reach out to us and we’ll talk you through it.
