Skills prioritised at Food and Drink World 2010

12 February 2010

Delegates will get the chance to find out about new developments in training at this year’s Food and Drink World as exhibitions put a strong emphasis on skills development

The National Skills Academy for Food and Drink Manufacturing will have its biggest ever presence at the top industry event at Birmingham’s NEC on March 21 -24, taking part in three shows. The dedicated team will be attending on all four days to give talks on skills and training and offer advice to employers face-to-face.

The Academy, which provides training to the food and drink industry to boost employee skills and drive up productivity through a network of providers, will host stands at Foodex, the Baking Industry Exhibition and the Food and Drink Logistics Show.

National Skills Academy executive director, Justine Fosh, will speak at several briefing theatres along with representatives from network champions and members specialising in training for the meat and poultry, bakery, seafood, dairy, drinks and food logistics sectors.

Justine Fosh said: “We are delighted to have such a big presence at this year’s Foodex exhibition. It offers the Academy a great opportunity to speak with people employed at all levels and across many sectors of the food and drink industry. We can learn more about their needs and they can find out more about us. The National Skills Academy exists to connect employees with the right training from the right provider; taking part in exhibitions like this ensures we continue to meet the needs of a diverse and ever-changing industry.”

Poultec Training, a specialist in providing training solutions to the meat and poultry sector, Reaseheath College which specialises in training for the dairy industry, the Seafood Training Academy and Food Dialog will all be represented at the Foodex stand. Staff from Durham-based DLC Training, which focuses on delivering innovative supply chain solutions to companies, will be at the National Skills Academy’s stand at the Food and Drink Logistics Show.

National Skills Academy business development manager, Jonathan Cooper, will take part in two briefing seminars at the Baking Industry Exhibition. He will speak about the training needs of the bakery sector now and in the future and the success of the Professional Bakery training course which was piloted in the north-west at the end of 2009.

Foodex 2010, previously known as Foodex Meatex, takes place at Birmingham's NEC on March 21-24. It covers every area of the food and drink processing and packaging market from meat, poultry, fish and dairy, through to vegetables, drinks and ready meals.
