The article looks at what is being done to attract more young people in the ethnic food market in Great Britain. The Ethnic Food Action Group (EFAG) collaborates with ethnic food manufacturers, giving them advice and helping them bridge the skills gap through a partnership with Leeds Thomas Danby College. The college provides training courses for employers with an International Skills Academy aimed specifically at providing service to ethnic food manufacturers. The EFAG is also launching a pilot scheme involving giving presentations and cookery demonstrations in secondary schools and bringing in successful ethnic food companies.
