Food and Drink Federation Careers Campaign: Taste Success A Future in Food
‘Taste Success – A Future in Food’ is an industry-led award winning campaign to attract new talent to UK food and drink manufacturing. The campaign engages with young people via various channels to bust the myths about food and drink manufacturing and raise awareness of the good career prospects in the sector has to offer. The campaign also engages with a number of stakeholder groups including teachers, parents and careers advisors to make them aware of the opportunities in our sector.
|The food and drink manufacturing industry employs more than 400,000 workers. However, current figures show that the industry suffers from a number of skills gaps, namely in science, technology and engineering related roles. By 2020 there will be a need for 170,300 new recruits to meet growing demand.
Taste Success – A Future in Food aspires to engage with young people and show them that food and drink manufacturing can offer a rewarding career with lots of exciting opportunities, as well as play a pivotal role in ensuring that there is a skilled and suitably qualified workforce in the ever competitive and highly developed UK food sector.
