Oliver Buddrick was born in Germany. He completed his qualification as a German master baker and pastry chef in Stuttgart, Germany where he worked in a variety of bakeries. In 1993, he settled in Australia continuing to work as a baker. He completed his Diploma in Food Science and Technology at William Angliss in Melbourne in 2007 where he was the winner of the Gelita Australia Pty Ltd Award for his work on food product development. He achieved his Bachelor Degree in Food Technology and Nutrition at RMIT University in 2009, followed by Honours in Food Science in 2010 with first class. Oliver received a prestigious industry award at the 44th Annual Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST) Convention at the Sydney Convention. He was also the recipient of a Grain Research & Development Corporation scholarship for his PhD study completed in 2014.
