What is Harvesting Tomorrows Skills (HTS)?

HTS is a network of companies and organisations which are working together to tackle the people and skills shortage within the agri-food industry and, in doing so, drive growth for the future.

Led by the Northern Ireland Food & Drink Association (NIFDA) and funded by Invest Northern Ireland, the two-year programme supports the ‘Going for Growth’ targets identified by the Agri-Food Strategy Board.

By working collaboratively and at multiple levels, HTS aims to challenge perceptions and encourage job seekers from all age groups and experience levels to consider the career opportunities the agri-food industry presents.

The long-term aim is to help recruit an additional 15,000 people to the sector by 2020

Collaboration is vital and HTS is working across the industry to champion investment in training so those already working in the sector are upskilled, motivated and committed to it for the long term.

HTS is also engaging with stakeholders including schools, colleges, local councils and business support organisations to dispel the myths and actively encourage young people, those starting their career journey and those considering a career change to realise the potential of everything the food and drink sector has to offer…..
