What do careers in the food & fibre sectors look like?

You might love programming robots, working with animals or protecting the environment. You might be an unstoppable problem solver or budding entrepreneur. By food & fibre we mean everything from growing quality food, wood and wool through to making those things into products like ice cream, burger patties, pizza boxes and clothing for fashion stores. It also involves taking those products to the world.
