‘The Future is Food’ helps students to gain a better understanding of the Irish artisan food sector, as well as the wider food industry.
Students will gain valuable experience of setting up and managing a food mini
company while also learning how their food is produced. Teachers are also encouraged to
engage with local food producers who will share their experience of the food industry.
‘The Future is Food’ shows that a career in the Irish food sector is open to all students with an interest in food and enterprise.
‘The Future is Food’ is designed with the busy teacher in mind. A full range of support materials are available including pick up and teach lesson plans, student activities and information sheets.Register Here
The future is food is a fun, interactive module that allows students to demonstrate their creativity and culinary skills by providing them with an opportunity to get involved in a project that requires them to develop their own food item and visit a food producer.
Artisan food producers and chefs across the country are signing up as volunteers to pass on their skills, knowledge and passion to the next generation. This unit reflects the innovative and dynamic nature of our artisan food sector and the collaborative spirit of those involved
This programme is significant in its focus on the future of our food industry. By offering students a glimpse into how the industry works, we hope that it will inspire future generations of farmers, growers, producers, chefs and above all, consumers. Bord Bia is delighted to be working on this initiative with the Taste Council
