Event description
Annandale Distillery are working with FDF Scotland and DYW to inspire educators about the wealth of career opportunities in Food & Drink.

About this Event

STEM subjects are vital to the continued success of the Scottish food and drink industry. That’s because when it comes to food and drink, Scotland cooks up a feast. Food and drink is one of our best-performing sectors and we export our whisky, seafood, meat, baking and other produce to over 105 countries.

We’re also doing world-class work around food and drink ideas and innovation, and new trends, how we manage the environment, health and wellbeing, and convenience. That’s something to be proud of and it’s also leading to great career and progression opportunities

Aimed at STEM educators and career influencers, this event will demonstrate: the skills required by employers, the relevance of STEM curriculum subjects to different careers and progression pathways and career routes available in this dynamic and exciting sector.

The will feature input from different organisations and individuals and will cover: the wealth of career opportunity in the industry, qualifications and progression pathways, the career journeys of individuals working in the industry and a tour of Annandale Distillery to see the application of STEM to the distilling process.

There will also be a networking opportunity with refreshments
