What Current Employees Are Saying

“I would describe it as more than just a job. People are passionate about their job and you have to be passionate if you want to work here. It is a very emotional job, and people are dedicated. You have to be flexible and eager to learn and to be challenged all the time.”

“The food companies I used to work for were just focused on products. This organization does much more. Day after day we have to cater to the different needs of different airlines and they’re constantly changing their specifications. Additionally, we provide a broad range of other services to our customers, like aircraft loading. So it’s much more than just offering products. This creates a very dynamic environment, which is what makes working here so exciting and challenging.”

“I very much enjoy the diversity, fast-paced and changing environment, and that I am able to get a lot of insight into the many different fields. In my old position I was dedicated to selling deep frozen hot meals, but now I am operating within the catering business. My current tasks do no consist of selling the nomination products anymore, but to grasp opportunities when talking to customers. I figure out where we can potentially sell our products and bundle deals.”
