FDF Scotland Parliamentary Reception: My career in food and drink

Invitation Only

FREE event


As part of a Year of Young People, FDF Scotland’s Parliamentary Reception will celebrate the talented young people who are working in Scotland’s food and drink sector and their contribution to the success of the industry.

This event will be kindly sponsored by John Scott MSP.

The whole food and drink industry makes a massive contribution to the economy, with an annual turnover of over £14bn but without the people that work in food and drink, the industry wouldn’t be the success it is today. However there is a skills gap especially in science, technology, and engineering roles and we need more talented recruits to meet our ambition to grow the industry turnover to £30bn by 2030.

Some of food and drink’s young talent will share their stories on the evening on why they joined the sector and why they are passionate about it. Our members will be at the event to showcase their products and the opportunity for careers in creating these products and getting them to market.

Join us to discuss how we inspire the next generation to consider a career in food and drink.
