  • Why is continuing education important to help the food industry reach its goals ?


The European Green Deal and the new circular economy action plan are game changers for food production and retailing. The food and drink industry is the largest manufacturing industry in the EU (EU Food Drink Industry Data and Trends 2019) and, therefore, a top contributor to Europe's economy. It generates the highest turnover (15%), added value (13%), and employment (15%) ahead of other manufacturing sectors. Despite these significant economic contributions, the sector faces numerous challenges associated with insufficient preparedness and the lack of harmonised regulations and standards. 


Lifelong learning and training programs are becoming the norm across industry sectors to help companies retain excellent staff that can help meet set targets, comply with new regulatory requirements being set, and transition towards a truly safe and sustainable circular economy.
