A day in the life

This video series aims to inspire you to consider a career within the agri-food sector.
Has this course inspired you to consider a career related to food production?

EIT Food has created a video series called A Day In the Life, which aims to inspire you to consider working in the agri-food sector.

The predicted labour shortage in our industry by 2030, coupled with the little careers information young people receive on food and farming roles, has driven the development of this series.

Watch the videos below to experience a day in the life of a farmer, a nutritionist and a mechanical engineer.
