Help entice next generation of food and drink manufacturing leaders

01/08/2014 16:56:36

Food and drink manufacturing is the largest manufacturing sector in the UK, and yet not many people know that.

We employ 400,000 people across a number of jobs, we innovate and bring 6,000 – 8,000 new products to the market each year and we’re constantly looking for the new future food leaders.

To help with this search, we’ve created a fun and informative teacher pack to inspire the next generation of leaders. Within the pack we have our key publications to help bring food manufacturing to life. These include Busting the Myths, a booklet which looks to dispel the perceptions of our industry and A Future in Food; a publication which looks at the number of jobs on offer from communications to factory level opportunities.

Our newest addition to the Taste Success collateral is "A Taste of Careers in food and drink". This publication looks at how Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects at school are used in food and drink manufacturing sector.

Finally we have a set of posters. These set out a simplified journey of some of the careers and processes involved in creating three products - chocolate, oatcake and smoothie. Have a look at the posters here:
