A company that gives you the change to develop yourself, but also the change to develop the company together. A company that continuously is looking for improvement, development, new challenges, so a week or working will never be the same. Besides the hard work you will also have the time to enjoy during our nice company lunch, keep yourself fit in the gym and other company events. When the place grabs you, you will also grab Interfood!

Enthusiasm to start in a job that expect you to be able to work in a dynamic, hectic environment where you need to focus on an accurate planning towards our suppliers and customer.

What do you do in your spare time?
In the weekends you will often see me with my family, 2 little kids that give me a lot of joy and fun. Besides that you will find me with friends cooking and a glass of wine to enjoy. To clear my mind I will go out for sport or a nice walk in the forest. During my holiday’s you will find me in the mountains, for a nice hike of skiing down the slope.

Supply Chain Lead

Why Interfood?
Work hard – play hard. Be good for Interfood and Interfood will be good for you. Despite the fact Interfood provides a challenging professional atmosphere, there is also time to enjoy sports activities, have a good lunch and enjoy other secondary benefits. Interfood has got it all for me; fun, challenging job, freedom, nice colleagues, ambitious and leadership. The dynamical environment triggers you to get the best out of yourself and the team you work in. Working ‘’together for better’’ is really in the veins of the company.

What do you expect from your new colleague?
A real team player who sees work and who sees challenges instead of problems. Good communication is key in getting things done, both internal as external. You need to be able to think outside the box and be flexible if changes come along your way. Being accurate and precise is needed to make sure you don’t forget the details – as that’s where the game is played often.

What do you do in your spare time?
I like to work out in the fitness, join my team playing field hockey and spend time with family and friends. DIY-shops are ones of my favorite to visit in the weekend. During my holidays you will definitely see me reading a book on the beach; you might see me skiing down the slope or see me visiting a city in Europe.
