Want a career in the agriculture and food industry?

Companies in the Danish agriculture and food cluster need skilled employees in a wide range of disciplines, such as business developers, food specialists, agricultural experts, IT supporters and developers, controllers, and sales and marketing.

The transition of agricultural production and food supply is one of the biggest challenges. And the goal is quite clear. The Danish food industry must be climate neutral by 2050 with unchanged or increased production. In 2050, there must still be a large Danish agricultural and food cluster that delivers exports, growth and jobs to all of Denmark.

Come to Career Day 2024, when Agro Food Park invites you to a day that will prepare you well for applying for a job in the agricultural and food industry. You can meet companies, hear professional presentations and participate in workshops. The event is free of charge.

Time: 19 September 2024

Location: Agro Food Park 15, 8200 Aarhus N
