What is it like to onboard in Lantmännen Unibake?
Els and Sarah in our Belgian office share their first impressions
We asked newcomers Els Uyttebroek and Sarah Mouton how it is to join the BeNeFrItEs team as they recently on-boarded. BeNeFrItEs is the Belgian, Dutch, French, Italian and Spanish market with a regional headquarter in Londerzeel, Belgium.
Els started as Category Manager in our Marketing department and is responsible for our product portfolio; therefore, she needs to understand our customers and the bakery business to ensure that we market what our customers and consumers want in the different countries we operate in. One of the best aspects of the onboarding program for her, was the tour in our bakeries in Londerzeel, Ganshoren and Moeskroen: ‘Meeting passionate people in the bakery that wants to produce quality and enjoy seeing our products in the local stores confirmed that I made the right decision joining Lantmännen Unibake. It is important that I can work cross functional and deliver my best and have fun while doing that’.
Sarah has taken on the NPD Bread Technologist role and manages new product ideas and works closely together with Marketing and our bakery to ensure that new bread ideas come to life. That was one of the reasons that Sarah joined Lantmännen Unibake as we want to innovate in a highly competitive environment. ‘Developing new product ideas and delivering to market is what I enjoy the most’, says Sarah, ‘nothing makes me happier to see the products sold at our customers in Retail and Horeca – it makes me very proud’.
Lantmännen Unibake is on a growth and change journey. We are always on the lookout for talents that can join our business and develop their (international) careers. Does this sound like you? Please check out our vacancies at www.lantmannen-unibake.com/about/career/
