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?

Through funding provided by MTCU, Workforce WindsorEssex has created an Occupational Guide for Food Processing in our region. This guide highlights the types of occupations that exist in the sector, important skill sets, regional training opportunities, myths regarding the sector, employers’ advice and more.

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 this occupational guide.
