Festo DJ robots prove to be a big hit at the Big Bang event 2016!

Big Bang Event 2016

Brought together by the Food & Drink Federation and the industry's careers campaign ‘Taste Success – A Future in Food’, Festo joined a stellar line up of food and drink brands: Mars UK, United Biscuits, Mondelez International, McCain Foods, PepsiCo UK and Premier Foods.

Visitors to the ‘FDF’ stand were able to take part in a wide array of activities including a chance to operate the Festo DJ Robot.

There were opportunities for visitors to speak to top level food and drink engineers, graduates and apprentices about what they get up to in their jobs and what it's like to be an engineer working in some of the UK's top companies.

Hanne Christensen, Taste Success campaign manager at the Food and Drink Federation, said:

“Attending events such as the Big Bang Fair is a fantastic way to engage with young people and to give them 'hands-on' experience of some of the many exciting things we do in our industry.  We hope that being at this event with so many great employers will inspire more young people to consider a future career in our industry.”
