Good Practices and Tools from the Food and Drink Industry in Europe


Bringing in new talents and managing an ageing workforce: two sides of the same coin – implementing good practices for a more attractive food and drink industry in Europe

This report builds on the findings of a previous joint study on ensuring sustainable employment and competitiveness in the EU food and drink sector which was funded by the EU Commission. This joint FoodDrinkEurope and EFFAT study showed that, although the food and drink manufacturing and processing sector had shown considerable resilience during the recent economic and financial crisis, it was unfortunately not seen as an attractive choice by many potential employees and therefore had difficulty recruiting some of the skills needed to improve the sector’s productivity and international competitiveness.
