We believe that personal and team development is a key factor to this success, which is why we spend significant time with individuals and the team as a whole to ensure that everyone is set up for success in achieving their ambition.   


We work together in an open and positive atmosphere, which is also reflected in our office, and we strive to maintain a good life/work balance. The Packaging department is an international community with 50+ colleagues from 12 different countries and we are based in Wageningen (the Netherlands), Singapore and multiple countries in Europe and Asia. Indeed, we see a mix of personalities and cultures as the perfect breeding ground for innovations. Our team members hold at least a Bachelor’s degree, gained experience with working in different cultures and are above average interested in consumer behavior or technology.
