Responding to the news that Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman has visited the Shropshire Food Enterprise Centre to raise profile of careers in the food industry, Angela Coleshill, HR Director at the Food and Drink Federation (FDF), says:

“The Food and Drink Federation has been busy promoting careers in the food industry for some time now. Our careers campaign ‘Taste Success – A Future in Food’ aims to show young people that by embarking upon a career in food, they can enjoy a rewarding career with lots of exciting opportunities.

“We are pleased to hear that Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman recognises the important contribution the food industry makes to the economy and that it is vital the industry attracts the right talent in order to fill the skills gap so as we can continue to grow and innovate.”

“Mrs Spelman also acknowledges that businesses are eager to offer apprenticeships which offer them a route to harness fresh new talent. FDF has contributed to the development of the Skills Action Plan for the Food Supply Chain which aims to encourage more apprenticeships across the entire Food Supply Chain. In fact, many of our members already have ambitious apprenticeship plans in place and we will shortly be unveiling details around our commitment to boost the number of apprenticeship training opportunities in the food and drink manufacturing sector”.
