Where Did All the Food Microbiologists Go?
Following feedback from some of the world’s leading food and drink businesses, Campden BRI have identified that there is a microbiology skills gap in the industry, Campden BRI has published a report identifying the key areas of microbiological training that need to be addressed to plug the gap and ensure that employees have the skills and knowledge to do their jobs effectively.
Devised in close collaboration with representatives from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Marks and Spencer, Tulip, Greencore and Two Sisters Food Group among others, the report will be used by Campden BRI to inform the development of industry training provision and related continuing professional development. It will also be used to promote the sector’s training needs to other training providers and relevant organisations.
