‘You learn very quickly because of the responsibility you get'
“I am a strategic buyer of stone fruit, winter carrots, onions and garlic. I really love my job. I see and hear a lot, have plenty of opportunities to travel and have a lot of responsibility. I work on developing the product group, try to increase sales, improve quality and am really sharp when it comes to procurement. I started out as a trainee working as a team leader in the Ripening Facility. I then moved to the commercial departments, where I felt like a duck in water.
