To reflect the nature of many food businesses today, our qualifications cover the food supply chain.
Agriculture and farming are critical to providing a sustainable food source to both UK and export markets. The current focus is around sustainability, environmental issues, animal welfare and driving up food quality.
This part of the supply chain has never been more challenged by consumer and retailer demands. Therefore innovation, responsiveness and high levels of safety, hygiene and traceability are paramount.
The interface between product and consumer, this is a diverse area with increasing choice for demanding consumers. The internet continues to have a significant impact on all businesses.
This is a dynamic and fast moving industry where cost control is paramount. Automation in storage facilities is advancing rapidly and energy efficiency a major concern for transportation businesses.
Thanks to FME our business has reduced waste, saved money, solved problems and won awards!
