Have you ever wondered what jobs are needed to make a tomato from a garden into the bottle of ketchup that you find in the grocery store? Have you ever wondered what jobs within distilleries, breweries or wineries look like?

Through funding provided by MTCU, Workforce WindsorEssex has created an Occupational Guide for Food Processing and for Beverage Manufacturing and Production in our region. This guide highlights the types of occupations that exist in the sector, regional training opportunities, myths regarding the sector, employers’ advice and more. Skills and key competencies are also included to allow the reader to see where their strengths could bring benefit to this growing industry.

Workforce WindsorEssex compiled this information through consultations with local employers and by analyzing local and relevant data. We encourage students, educators, employment counsellors, people looking for work and those who would like to learn more about the sector to engage in learning more through these occupational guides.
