Job Outlook

Overall employment of food and tobacco processing workers is projected to grow 5 percent from 2020 to 2030, slower than the average for all occupations. Despite limited employment growth, about 32,600 openings for food and tobacco processing workers are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Most of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.
