Vacancy Crisis

If you are involved in Canada’s food and beverage manufacturing industry you already understand that we are in the middle of a severe employment vacancy crisis. People employed by Canada’s 13,000 businesses are at the heart of this industry’s success, but if growth is to continue and people are to be nourished around the globe, attracting and retaining skilled individuals must be the number one priority.

It’s a fact — by 2025, food and beverage manufacturers will need about 55,000 more people or 20% of the existing workforce. And each vacancy is costing employers a remarkable $190 per day or an average daily industry loss of revenue of $8.5 million.

We have solutions that can help you.
