2017 Report on Future Skills Needs in the Food and Drink Sector
The Food Wise 2025 strategy identified the people in the agri food sector as key to the sector’s future success. Food Wise recommended that the Expert Group on Future Skills for Industry be asked to update a previous report in 2009 on Future Skills Needs in the Food and Drinks sector.
One of the recommendations of Food Wise 2025 was
‘Request the Expert Group on Future Skills for Industry update the report on Future Skills Needs in the Food and Drinks sector at management, financial, innovation and operational levels’.
DJEI agreed to update the 2009 Report of the Expert Group on Future Skills of the Food and Drinks Industry to reflect the concerns outlined in Food Wise 2025 for the attraction, retention and development of talent capability for all in the agri food sector.
The Departments of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation worked closely to update the report, and jointly hosted a Food and Drinks Skills Workshop in November last year.
