FaB's Farm-Factory-Fork High School Career Discovery
Thursday, September 24, 2020, 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM CDT
Category: FaB Events

To inspire the next generation of talent into the career-making possibilities of our food and beverage industry, FaB hosts its Farm to Factory to Fork High School Career Discovery. With nearly half of our existing working population due to retire, ensuring there is a pipeline of talent for the food and beverage industry is more important than ever. Additionally, talent is required if we are to double our food production by the year 2050 to feed a global population of 9.7 billion.

Since 2014, over 2,000 high school students have met with an impressive collection of exhibitors, including ingredients, consumer product and packaging makers, grocery retail, and professional service firms focused on the industry. Students hear from industry leaders and innovators, participate in interactive discovery activities for valuable hands-on learning, and share their ideas for feeding the world.

In its sixth year, FaB's annual Farm-Factory-Fork Career Discovery offers high school students an impression-making, career-based learning experience with Wisconsin's food and beverage companies. Join us!

WHAT TO EXPECT In our Industry Galleria, students can meet with industry professionals in a variety of positions and roles offering a variety of work-based learning opportunities. College and universities will be present as well sharing their industry degrees. We’ll feature Lakeland University's Food Safety & Quality program with interactive, hands-on activities relating to food safety.
