And our 4,000 UK employees and 19,000 global employees are at the heart of it. In their individual roles, they help us build on our €10bn turnover and establish our position as one of the largest dairy companies in the world.

Case Studies

  • Name: Eva Gattringer

Description:

My project was to develop new serving solutions, equipment and packaging to serve our customers better. I had no idea about this when I started my rotation, but by now I am working on various projects involving many customers, suppliers, local Foodservice teams and even our newly formed Global Foodservice organization. I started this project with the goal to launch one solution before the end of my rotation. For me as a ‘squared person’ out-of-the-blue innovation was a real challenge – basically the opposite of what I would have chosen before the programme. Looking back, this task to be creative, work with insecurity and lead my own projects was exactly the right challenge for me! The F15® programme is designed to push you out of your comfort zone and I can confirm that this only brings you forward and lets you grow.

What is the difference between the F15 Graduate Programme and the Supply Chain Graduate Programme?

In the three-year Supply Chain Graduate Programme, you rotate to different production sites and your focus is on one functional area namely the supply chain - and not i.e. on the commercial side of the business. The F15 Programme is a two-year programme where you work in three different functional areas i.e between marketing, business development and finance.
