Business Studies: Focus on the Food Industry

Business Studies: Focus on the Food Industry From Cow to Comsumer

Focus on The Food Industry gives students a unique and interesting insight into the world of business. Covering the 3 major business sectors, the resource is an in-depth study of the real life food production activities at Roskilly’s organic dairy farm in Cornwall. The resource demonstrates how raw materials end up in the shopping basket of the end user and the business concepts related to this process.

Each stage of production and sales covered relates directly back to some of the fundamental aspects of business, including starting a business, business structures, marketing and customers, people in business, production, finance, and business environment.

The resource is filled with video clips of industrial processes, information, and interactive animations, so students can test their knowledge through interactive quizzes, wordsearches, and games. The resource will run on any device including PCs, Learning Platforms, even iPads and Android tablets.
