People are our most important asset.
We are committed to our employees and strive to make our company the workplace of choice.
We also like to reward our staff and give them the recognition we feel they deserve to thank them for their work and extra efforts.
An integral part of our company ethos is to give back, and share with, the community.
Each year we work with a chosen charity and hold charity fund raising events. We also actively support our clients with any initiatives they may have.
In addition to this, we work with the community by supporting local community training and master classes. Our focus for this year is to work with students and schools to educate the young in adopting a healthy lifestyle and inspire young people into the world of food.
