Project Eden Expands Its Purview
March 29, 2016
To compensate for the current deficiency of skills in the UK food and drink manufacturing industry, and to prevent the problem from growing, Project Eden, an educational skills-training programme originally developed for the dairy industry, has expanded its purview to include all food industry sectors. The programme, supported by the National Skills Academy for Food and Drink, will offer a long-term solution by providing current employees with well-rounded educations so that they can not only work more effectively, but can be leaders in their sectors.
Employees will receive training on how to use modern, state-of-the-art machinery and on techniques and training on broader industry concepts, such as product development standards. With support from Project Eden, the food industry is expected to narrow the skills gap and expand its productivity.
