The Year of Young People 2018 is all about promoting, inspiring and celebrating the talents, achievements and contributions of Scotland’s incredible young people.
With Health and Wellbeing featuring as one of the six themes for YOYP, Food Standards Scotland is proud to support young people to lead healthier lives. And who knows, perhaps to carve out a career within the food industry.
Find out what we’re doing for the Year of Young People 2018 and how young people can get involved.
We partnered with Young Scot for our recent healthy eating campaign, #NoToUpsizing, to encourage the younger generation to say no thanks more often when they’re asked to ‘go large’, ‘add a side’ or ‘make it a deal’. We’ll be working more with Young Scot over the coming weeks and months. We also worked with universities and colleges throughout Scotland who lent their support to the campaign.
For our Summer Food Safety campaign, ‘Pink Chicken’, our partnership work included supermarkets Co-op, Aldi and Tesco, and Cricket Scotland, who helped spread the word: “Don’t let Pink Chicken Spoil Your Summer”.
Our Kitchen Crimes food safety campaign saw us link up with Lidl who helped distribute 20,000 sticker leaflets at till points, asking people to check their kitchen crime records.
Check out the blogs from younger people working at FSS or in the food industry. We hope you’ll be inspired to think about a career in the food and drink sector.
