It has been three years since we last opened our doors to budding food and drink newbies at the Royal Welsh Show but now we are back better than ever joining forces with many partners and even Wales’ largest supplier of Welsh produce, Pembrokeshire’s Puffin Produce.

The Food & Drink Careers Hub 2022 aims to equip young and old with the means and ways to decide, plan and compete for opportunities in the Welsh food and drink industry. For every job available there is now only one applicant in this sector so we need to entice people back and show the younger generation the fascinating world of food production and manufacturing.

Jobs opportunities in the food and drink industry vary widely from new product development to quality control, from logistics to warehouse managers, from marketing and branding to finance, it’s not just about food.

Join us and our many partners during this year’s Royal Welsh Show (18-21 July) at our Food & Drink Careers Hub in the Clwyd Glamorgan Building to find out more.
