Many people think the wholesale baking world is comprised of only bakers, but it isn’t—there are so many more job opportunities!
Industry-wide, help is needed in a critical way. The wholesale baking industry is facing a shortage of qualified employees; we need motivated people to fill our job openings. A large number of current and anticipated job opportunities are available in engineering, maintenance, machine operations, food scientists and research & development.
- 78% of the baking companies reported a shortage of employees in engineering and maintenance positions, both hourly and salaried. This shortage is expected to remain “high” to “severe”.
- Skilled positions have grown by 60% over the past 5 years. The baking industry is deficient in employees in all areas of production with leadership skills, problem solving and decision making skills, as well as baking-industry specific technical skills.
