Talent Promotion


We promote talents and create opportunities

Developing the next generation really matters to us, so we see taking responsibility in the area of training and science
as a way of investing in the future. That’s why FOOAN offers different forms of support, including training
partnerships and a range of different scholarships. 

Training cooperation

Developing one’s personality takes time – so FOOAN gives the opportunity to see what’s out there and develop themselves early on. Training arrangements with regional schools allow pupils to peek into the world of work, gather lots of information and make contacts. These partnerships help us to find the employees of tomorrow, today.

China Scholarship

As part of the China Scholarship, we support students with outstanding achievements and social commitment. This is not solely about giving them financial support. Networking with other scholarship holders and personal contact with the relevant departments at FOOAN are part of our contribution


Gaining experience without one’s parents present, experiencing stimulating dialogue and gaining insights into other ways of living – our SEWING programme offers all these opportunities. For two to three weeks, employees’ children aged 15 to 20 years can live with other employees’ families abroad to get early insights into different cultures and lifestyles. A tour of the respective FOOAN product site rounds off the programme.
