Dairy Crest talks apprenticeships at Appetite for Engineering

10 September 2013

Dairy Crest is the latest company to sign up to speak at this year’s Appetite for Engineering (A4E).

The UK dairy company, which is behind brands such as Clover butter, Cathedral City cheese, Country Life milk and Frylight, joins a panel of speakers that includes Nestlé, Heineken, Coca-Cola Enterprises and Britvic.

As part of A4E’s ‘Responsibility’ stream, Dairy Crest’s group maintenance manager, Andy Parker, will be explaining the dairy industry’s pilot scheme to developing engineers. He will also outline the benefits of this new approach to both companies and learners. Additionally, Andy will be outlining the new practical centre of food engineering being built in Nantwich to support apprenticeship training.

Andy has spent 16 years working in operations and engineering positions for food and drink manufacturing companies including Bass, Johnson & Johnson and ABInBev before moving to Dairy Crest in 2012. He is a graduate in Mechanical and Optical Engineering from Loughborough University and a Chartered Engineer.

A4E’s Responsibility stream includes well respected speakers such as: Justine Fosh, CEO of the National Skills Academy; Melanie Leech, director general of the FDF; Sam Richards, an engineering apprentice at Britvic; and Val Braybrooks, Dean at the University of Lincoln.
Chris Shaw, editor of Food Processing magazine, said: “We are delighted with the quality of speakers and content we have for this year’s A4E. The day affords delegates an amazing opportunity to network with a wide array of end users.”
