They are very reactive to the needs of its members and will always be guided by member companies on where investment should be made.

Lakeland Dairies understands the strategic importance of attracting talent into our business. The Lakeland Dairies Graduate Programme has been running for the past five years and the Food Drink Ireland Skillnet diploma programme has been a critical element of this process. This programme not only demonstrates our commitment to employee development, which supports the attraction of graduates, but it also has been vital in ensuring they develop the professional skills required to work within our business.
