Food retailers currently are going through a bigger shift in their digital skills hiring but there are developments on the horizon that could disrupt product supplier hiring patterns as well. Perhaps foremost is a need to provide greater transparency throughout the supply chain and meet expanded sustainability goals. Digital systems and associated skills are needed to capture, integrate, and make sense of the data to drive these transparency and sustainability functions. A scale up in direct-to-consumer channel sales, more private-label competition from web retailers with deeper data on customers, or a move to small-batch manufacturing and niche brands (e.g., personalized food-as-medicine offerings) could also shake up digital skill needs by necessitating more digitally driven business models to deliver and compete.
Once you complete the task you will realise technology helps you complete your role more efficiently by performing manual jobs automatically. Automation also reduces the number of errors in the workplace, which will speed up your processes and help you make more accurate decisions. Here are a few specific examples of how technology improves your productivity:
- Project tracking with deadline notifications to keep your business on schedule
- Flexible work environments to allow for remote or multi-locational offices
- Collaboration software to increase company communication
- Inventory tracking and automated ordering
- Customer kiosks and apps that allow customers to use self-service
Too often, learners see only the technical side of coding and aren't aware of how useful it can be in their lives. The goal of Scratch goes beyond introducing the technical skills of coding. With Scratch, women can learn how to use coding to bring their ideas to life.
By using scratch to learn how to manage a food factory, they learn to grasp computational concepts, such as sequencing, iteration, and variables, and computational practices, such as debugging and abstraction. More importantly, they develop the ability to carry out ideas from start to finish — envisioning possibilities, solving problems they encounter, presenting their creations and revising based on feedback.
Just as building blocks enable children to imagine and create a variety of structures, the Scratch coding blocks allow women to imagine, create and share an amazing variety of projects.

In this example we will code a project, which replicates the running of a food factory that produces cake.
This project will help you develop an understanding how coding is used in the food industry. As part of the activity participants will design a software in which the factory workers will be able to;
- Display the list of products
- Display the ingredient stocklist with quantities and prices
- Log ingredients that have been used
- Show stock to be replenished
- Log quality control results
In order to complete this task you will need to go to the resources section and find the document titled: Scratch Advance - Process. Follow slide three onards which gives you a step by step guide on what to do.
In the resources section look at the link 10 ways to make integration gender-sensitive this very insightful link looks at how media images of migrants are overwhelmingly male, however about half of all migrants in the EU are women. These women often have a harder time finding a job, are more likely than their male counterparts to end up in work for which they are over-qualified and tend to bear a greater burden of unpaid domestic work. This will help you understand what steps you need to take in order to prepare yourself to get into the job you want.
In the resorces section watch the video titled The skill of self confidence | Dr. Ivan Joseph | TEDxRyersonU this is a great video on how elite atheletes develop their confidence and how and why they need regular training in building confidence. The video provides an insight into why talent is not enough to help you progress in your chosen career, you need to have the condidence and motivation.

- Coding is excellent practice for attention to detail. Not only from the perspective of the accuracy of the code itself but also accounting for users’ needs, for example, ensuring a well-designed user interface and experience.
- You will develop ability to undertake abstract thinking, the ability to think about objects, principles, and ideas that are not physically present.
