Industry Leaders to Address New Jersey’s Growing Demand for Food Industry Talent on October 16th

NJBIZ, New Jersey’s leading business journal, today announced a new collaboration with The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJLWD) and The Rutgers Food Innovation Center (FIC) to host The New Jersey Food & Beverage Summit on Tuesday, October 16th in Somerset, New Jersey. The free event, which is part of NJBIZ’s leading FoodBizNJ event series, will focus on the changing landscape of economic and workforce development within the Garden State’s food industry.

New Jersey is a growing food and beverage hub and a leading force in food innovation and research. According to Choose New Jersey, the state boasts a $126 billion food industry and agriculture sector, which employs 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.”

The New Jersey Food & Beverage Summit is the latest in a series of food industry events from NJBIZ. In April, FoodBizNJ welcomed world-renowned Chef David Burke and hundreds of local food and beverage companies, entrepreneurs and vendors to spotlight the growing food economy in New Jersey.
