16.10.2014: An Appetite for the future - Youth apprenticeships in the food and drink industry


On 16 October, please join FoodDrinkEurope and EFFAT for the launch of our Youth Apprenticeships pledge which aims, amongst other things, to facilitate the uptake of high quality apprenticeship and traineeship positions in food and drink manufacturing companies across the EU, with a particular focus on small and medium sized enterprises. The event will be hosted by Siôn Simon MEP (S&D, UK).

FoodDrinkEurope has joined forces with its social partner, the European Federation of Food Agriculture and Tourism (EFFAT), to respond to one of the greatest challenges facing Europe today: lack of skills and job opportunities. As Europe’s number one employer in the manufacturing sector, the food and drink industry is prepared to play an important role in meeting this challenge; Together with EFFAT we want to address the employability of young people.

For registration please send your full name, date of birth, nationality, type of ID, ID number, address and organisation/company name to Ms Sophie Margetis ([email protected],  FoodDrinkEurope) by 9 October 2014 (Deadline is imperative due to EP registration procedures).
