FSDF SUPPORTS NEW BOARD GAME TO ENCOURAGE YOUNG TALENT TO SUPPLY CHAIN INDUSTRY

Posted in: Education

The Food Storage and Distribution Federation (FSDF) has announced that it will be one of the logistics partners supporting Business on the Move, designed to educate 9 to 19 year olds about the global supply chain industry.

Chris Sturman, CEO of FSDF commented: “One of the current hot topics for our members is skill shortages and the ongoing attraction of talent to the industry. It is for this reason we are delighted to be associated with the ‘Business on the Move’ project, which we feel will help to excite young people about the global supply chain business and underpin how it functions as a fundamental part of global business overall.

“The FSDF’s involvement in Business on the Move is part of the federation’s wider strategic plan to actively attract, develop and retain talent into the food supply chain industry. We have been working in close association with our members and Skills for Logistics to develop a number of training and professional development pathways which includes apprenticeship schemes that will provide a thorough introduction to the industry. We are also in the process of developing higher education career opportunities through specifically designed company modules, Foundation degrees and Masters programmes. The training and development that we are offering will ensure that a large proportion of these individuals will become the future leaders of the food supply chain industry.”
