Food & drink is an industry made up of passionate professionals as opposed to particularly well paid staff. The average salary in the sector will sit between £23K-£40K although there are many determining factors such as job role, experience and type of organisation that can affect this. Directors and managers could far exceed the average, whereas graduates and trainees will typically earn less than £20K.

The food & drink industry doesn't necessarily require a degree, but some positions will require this or a similar qualification. A food technologist will benefit from a degree in biochemistry, chemical engineering or food science, while a food hygienist will most likely need a CIEH in food safety. Each vocation will need a different set of qualifications and skills, but good communication, commercial awareness and a passion for the field are needed across the entire industry. Food & drink recruitment agencies are able to assess these skills and ensure clients are being supplied with staff who can make an immediate impact in the job.
