We inspired the next generation of talent at our Career Discovery on May 10 at Concordia University in Mequon. This was a high school student experience to discover and plan career futures with those who feed and quench our own and the world. Did you come out to Farm Factory Fork with us?

The talent required to operate and grow a food and beverage company comes from many of the career clusters available to students through their academic career planning. In its fifth year, FaB's Farm-Factory-Fork Career Discovery offers high school students an impression-making career-based learning experience with Wisconsin's food and beverage companies and colleges and universities. It offers students and their schools a menu of ways to discover, plan, and pursue a career in the food and beverage industry.


           

At the 2019 FFF, students and their chaperones met industry professionals in a variety of positions and roles, food and beverage companies with a variety of work-based learning opportunities, and colleges and universities which offer industry degrees. New this year, students also engaged in a process of product development being led by Concordia University’s team behind their Master in Food Product Development Program.
