The Details

On Tuesday, October 16, the NJ Food & Beverage Summit will take place at the Palace at Somerset Park, in Somerset, NJ. The free event will focus on the changing landscape of economic and workforce development within the food industry across New Jersey. Hosts include NJBIZ, in collaboration with the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJLWD) and the Rutgers Food Innovation Center (FIC).

According to Choose New Jersey, the Garden State is home to a $126 billion food industry and agriculture sector, employing more than 440,000 people.

“New Jersey is home to some of the world’s largest food and beverage companies and having a strong and well-educated workforce is paramount to keeping our state on top of the global food chain,” said Ken Kiczales, publisher of NJBIZ. “This event showcases the strategies and forward-looking thinking required to develop the next generation of employees that will drive the state’s food industry forward. Partnering with the NJLWD and FIC will ensure an insightful exchange of ideas on meeting New Jersey’s hunger for food industry talent.”
