Feeding Britain's Future

IGD’s Feeding Britain’s Future programme brings the industry together to inspire the next generation and equip them with skills for work. Through Feeding Britain’s Future, the industry has offered over 60,000 learning opportunities to young unemployed people and school students.

Our programmes in secondary schools bring to life the world of work, highlight the skills required to succeed in the workplace and showcase the variety of roles available in the food and grocery industry.  

Our new video highlights the diverse range of roles available, and the different skills people use at work.
