With Brexit looming large, the food and drink industry is facing more challenges than ever in securing a future pipeline of skills and labour. An ageing workforce, difficulty in attracting and retaining talent, a lack of skilled workers coming through further and higher education, and uncertainty over the future position of EU nationals is creating a perfect storm for the industry.

We urgently need to understand the future skills requirements and work closely with academia and training providers to define and deliver those skills. This conference will look at what skills the food and drink sector needs now and in the future in order to improve productivity and competitiveness. Participants will join the debate, highlighting what support they need to attract talented people and build a skilled and resilient workforce to cope with tomorrow’s challenges. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to discuss their skills needs with training providers.
