Bringing Scotland's schools and food and drink companies together.

A Future in Food

Chryston High School Pupils learning about Microbiology

Through our schools work - A Future in Food, we create and support long-term partnerships between schools and food and drink companies that support A Curriculum for Excellence.

For schools looking for support for a specific event or activity we have 300 food and drink ambassadors from across the food chain that can help at career events, host site visits or run classroom workshops.

A Future in Food helps teachers, pupils and parents better understand the food and drink industry in Scotland, highlights the wide variety of careers on offer, helps pupils understand the skills required by employers and how the subjects they study in school relate to the real world of work.

This work also helps pupils, teachers and parents explore the different access and progression routes in the industry.
