The Rutgers University Food Innovation Center and the New Jersey Institute of Technology will host an event at Flying Fish Brewery in Somerdale on December 12 geared toward people in the state’s bustling food processing industry. The Food Industry Targeted Industry Partnership, or FoodTIP, will go from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. and be followed by a dinner and networking event.
With funding from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the ManufactureNJ Talent Network, the Center will present a workshop and brainstorming session aimed at identifying solutions to the food manufacturing industry’s pressing workforce needs.
The event provides an opportunity for members of the food processing industry to spearhead discussion on industry priorities with business, workforce, education, and state officials.
Together, attendees will also develop strategic ways to address skills, talent and innovation gaps, and to create career pathways, identify training opportunities and state grants.
