What is A Future in Food?

Chryston High School Pupils learning about Microbiology

A Future in Food is a national programme that facilitates partnerships between school and industry to help deliver the curriculum by using food as a context for learning. It helps teachers, pupils and parents better understand the food and drink manufacturing sector in Scotland, highlights the wide variety of careers on offer and explores the routes to access them.

A Future in Food is a collective approach that contributes to the future of Scotland's young people, the food and drink industry and the wider economy.
