About Speaking Food

At Food Processing Skills Canada, our mission is to make certain that the Canadian food and beverage manufacturing sector is building an empowered and resilient workforce that is primed for growth. We create industry-driven programs for Canada’s 13,000+ food and beverage manufacturing establishments and the sector’s 300,000+ people so that businesses and individuals can achieve their goals.

It’s about making certain that Canadians, new immigrants, and temporary foreign workers have the training and confidence to successfully begin an exciting job or advance their career. It is also about ensuring employers and educators have the right resources to nurture talent and create the perfect learning environment.

Speaking Food is an exciting new initiative launched in March 2023 with support from Employment and Social Development Canada, to engage the food and beverage manufacturing industry and stakeholders in important discussions on key priorities impacting the sector.

Everyone is welcome to participate in our livestream events and if you have an idea or topic for a future event, we would love to hear it!
