27,000 jobs to fill by 2022 to bolster industry’s continued success

The organisation responsible for Scotland’s food and drink sector is encouraging more young people to choose a career in the industry and help double its value by the year 2030.

Scotland Food & Drink is using its annual Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight as a platform to highlight the huge diversity within the industry and position it as a fantastic and rewarding career for young people.

The organisation has set out a long-term vision to fill around 27,000 jobs by 2022 to ensure the industry continues to grow. This follows the Ambition 2030 cross-sector growth strategy unveiled in 2017 in which the organisation announced its goal of doubling the value of the industry to £30 billion by 2030.
