Bringing together training, hr, maintenance and engineering professionals from the key food and drink organisations has led to a determined commitment to work together to find a united way of progressing skills and training to maximise plant efficiency.
“We must leverage all the skills and experience around the room to help each other, said Phil Hooper, Organisational Capability Manager at PepsiCo.
Engineers and managers from UK’s most high profile food and drink companies such as Thorntons, Britvic, Premier Foods, Kelloggs, Carlsberg and Cadbury joined the debate about the issues facing engineering and maintenance training. The Seminar, hosted by MCP with support from the National Skills Academy, Reaseheath College and CenFRA, was a starting point for setting the agenda for shaping the performance of training for operators and technicians in the food and drink sector.
The seminar has proved to be the first stepping stone in a journey to ensure best practice in training with a second seminar already planned for 2010.
Delegates as well as directors from key organisations such as Warburtons, Diageo and Premier Foods are being invited to join a steering group to drive the change. Training and Operational professionals from other sectors such as the pharmaceutical industry will also be involved in the process to take best practice forward.
