The Scottish Fellowship in Food & Drink is a professional qualification designed to deliver tangible and quantifiable benefits for programme participants and their organisations. It is aimed at managers and owners of small and medium sized businesses and middle or junior managers of larger enterprises. The programme was created in response to industry demand and following discussions between organisations such as QMS, Scotland Food & Drink and A K Stoddart.
The programme is delivered in four modules over a year by SAC Consulting's Food & Drink Team and the University of Abertay. Four managers took part in the first year of the Fellowship and another four participants, this time from the meat and bakery sectors will participate on the second year's programme.
"Developed for the industry by the industry, the Food and Drink Fellowship has been designed to equip tomorrow's business leaders with the tools and knowledge they need to address the issues and opportunities of running a food and drink business.
Drawing on case studies and guest speakers from the industry, the fellowship will deliver practical and first-hand experience on developing successful strategies for growing the student's business."
