Background

Partnering with workers

As the largest manufacturing employer in Europe, the food and drink industry is also the biggest employer – with a workforce of more than 4.8 million. The industry has developed strong relations with workers and trade unions and we pride ourselves on continuing constructive dialogue.

FoodDrinkEurope is actively involved in a formal social dialogue with the trade union for food, agriculture and tourism workers – EFFAT. Ensuring human rights and health and safety at work is vital for all employers.
