On 1st April 2015, Scottish Bakers rebranded its training arm to National Food and Drink Training (NFDT). This is a direct result of strengthening its training provision to include lean manufacturing techniques and the delivery of the new Food Manufacturing Excellence (FME) qualifications. As a result of this NFDT is now working with major companies out-with the bakery sector. Companies included operate within the meat processing sector, the fish processing sector, mineral water and sweet manufacturing.

NFDT has developed considerable experience in the delivery of work-based learning and developed a range of learning support material to provide much needed underpinning knowledge and is currently developing an on-line food and drink training academy.

NFDT employs a team of Training Advisors to support training delivery in Scotland, England and Northern Ireland. This means that we can provide effective work based learning in the workforce at a time that suits your business and your employees, whether its day shift, night shift, back shift or split shifts.

NFDT ensures training for food and drink companies relates exactly to the industry and its products and courses can be tailored to meet specific company needs. The organisation’s main objective is to make the food and drink industry more competitive and sustainable through the skills and development of its staff.
