Workforce Needs Assessment: Food and Agriculture
This 2016 report presents findings on the analysis of the Food and Agriculture industry cluster. It is the fifth in a series covering the six Next Economy-identified industry clusters.
The report provides an overview of the cluster, industry trends and economic impact, as well as an overview of the top demand occupations in the cluster, along with projected occupational demand, institutions providing related education and training, and possible workforce gaps.
This report was developed as a partnership between the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), Valley Vision, Los Rios Center of Excellence, and the Burris Service Group.
Valley Vision and partners are working across the region to address the key findings from this assessment as part of our Capital Region Workforce Action Plan activities. We have produced several additional resources through the regular industry advisory meetings which we organize. See also:
