Food Skills Cymru

The Food Skills Cymru programme delivered by Lantra supports businesses within the Welsh food and drink processing and manufacturing industry to ensure employees have the right skills and training to strengthen the industry as a whole. Working across all sectors within the Welsh food and drink industry, it will prepare employees across Wales to adapt to future economic and environmental challenges and position them to capitalise on opportunities for business development and growth. 

Eligible businesses wanting to access the funding available to support with the cost of completing training courses will need to engage with Lantra and complete a Skills Diagnostic Tool that will help businesses identify and prioritise training needs.

An element of the programme covers Wales A Food Destination which supports Welsh Businesses from the hospitality sector to source serve or sell Welsh food and drink through cafes, restaurants, shops, farmers markets, food festivals, B&B’s, tourist attractions etc.

Lantra has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government to deliver the Food Skills Cymru Programme.
