A career in the food industry will put you in the middle of the largest and most important economic activity in the world.

The food and drink manufacturing industry is the single largest manufacturing sector in the UK. It employs some 470,000 people, representing 13% of the manufacturing workforce in the UK and has a turnover of £75bn accounting for 15% of the total manufacturing sector. Ours is the fourth largest food and drink manufacturing industry in the world.
