Researchers look at skills shortages and careers pathways in the agrifood industry. Sustaining the agriculture, food and drink industries requires human capital. Current estimates calculate that the agrifood supply chain employs approaching 4m people of whom over 10% are within the food and drink sector. The 2017 Nesta report, The Future of Skills: Employment in 2030 has indicated that the food preparation and hospitality occupations are likely to show the largest growth of any industry in the UK. The food and drink industry has identified that it will need over 140,000 new recruits by 2024, along with another 595,000 in agriculture to replace those retiring or leaving the sector for other reasons. There is a particular shortage of experience in food engineering, food science, crop technology, engineering and automation, and management, with higher-level skills shortages across the sector.
