A Consistently Growing Industry

According to the 2021 Research and Markets study, Food and Beverages Global Market Opportunities and Strategies to 2030, the global food and beverages market is expected to grow at an annual growth rate of 6.1% and reach $7.5 trillion dollars by 2023, $8.6 trillion by 2025, and $11.98 trillion in 2030. You won’t find that kind of growth and stability in many industries!

Demographics Favor the Young

The retirement of more than 75 million baby boomers in the near term creates a challenge for most industries in the USA with the food and beverage industry especially hard hit as it tries to keep up with these growth estimates while feeding a hungry world!

These two factors come together to create a unique career opportunity for young people, no matter what your field of study. On top of that, this is not a short-term trend. New job opportunities are growing across the country at all types of food companies and those that service them.
