Taste 4 Success Skillnet

The Taste 4 Success Skillnet works with its members to identify and drive training and upskilling in the food, seafood and drink sectors, to meet business, people and performance needs. In particular, we encourage and support the development of new foods, new drinks, new skills and new opportunities to grow and promote Irish Food, Seafood and Drink products, and to support job-seekers in gaining new skills and work opportunities across the sectors.
