The future of food
Concerns over consumer health and diet, sustainability issues, and packaging waste, are influencing the recruiting search for candidates in the Food Service sector.
Manufacturers, distributors, hospitality venues, QSRs, and full-service restaurants have a variety of staffing needs, but have this in common: they must innovate to survive. In almost every area of business, they are either implementing digital transformation, or they are competing with it.
Manufacturers are heavily engaged in research and product development, which has brought them increased revenue streams gained through data science. Distributors are seeking supply chain management improvements, as well as logistics and distribution expertise. Hospitality and restaurant chains are using ICT and algorithms to connect with their audiences and deliver a memorable customer experience.
