The Food and Drink NSA

Food and drink manufacturing is the largest UK manufacturing sector, the only growing manufacturing sector, and second in the world in terms of global productivity. It is vital to the sustainability of the UK economy.

The National Skills Academy for Food & Drink (NSAFD) continues to play a central part in maintaining and improving this position now and in the future, by providing a platform for delivering the skills that the industry truly needs.

In 2017 the Seafood Training Academy withdrew from the NSAFD Network after 10 productive years as part of the NSAFD Network. The Seafood Training Academy continues its role of supporting an independent network of providers of fish and shellfish training.

The Sea Fish Industry Authority's relationship with the NSAFD (and before that Improve Ltd) is even longer and continues to be productive and beneficial. Seafish and the NSAFD will continue to enjoy a close and mutually beneficial relationship for many years to come.
