Experts from across the United Kingdom have converged on Wisbech Grammar School to showcase the tempting career openings in the food industry.
Guest speakers from Scotland, Sheffield Hallam University and Harper Adams University in Shropshire were amongst a top team of leading food experts who dished up a diet of talks and demonstrations at the first careers in food conference to be staged at the school.
Development chef Neil Roseweir flew in from north of the border, where he has worked at a number of Scottish hotels and venues for over 20 years, to address the audience of pupils drawn from secondary schools in the region and their parents.
He was joined by past pupil Dr Patricia Mucavele, who works with the government to ensure that all school children have access to nutritional diets and who is set to start working with the school in the near future.
Organiser Alison Sloan, head of food and nutrition at Wisbech Grammar School, said: “I wanted to show people the versatility and the range of jobs there are in the food industry.
