Our goals include:

(1) Spreading awareness of the different occupations available in Food & Beverage;

(2) Support students/grads starting their careers or during a job transition;

(3) Create an interactive platform for the Food & Beverage industry as a whole.

Here is a place we encourage story-telling and sharing experiences.  Peer to peer, students and recent grads write about their own path to education and career in Food & Beverage.

In April 2018 we have partnered with Taste Your Future, a Food & Beverage Ontario program.  Check out what this #DreamTeam have been up to!   #YourCareerOurMission
