Technical Innovation Lead based in Amsterdam. I am currently working on developing and optimising our range of UHT creams being made at a third-party manufacturer in the Netherlands. Proud that I’ve been involved with the factory since commissioning, and we have recently reached our current production capacity.
It exposed me to a range of people and roles across the company. Really helped me get understand the diverse range of roles available and get a better idea of what areas I enjoy working in. Coincidently my FGTP project was also based around commissioning (Cream Cheese 3 in Darfield) and I ended up back in that space years later.
How high the retention rate is at Fonterra. People working here tend to stay for a long time, my FGTP year still has all but one graduates at the company.
I enjoy using my technical background to assist with marketing and sales, would like to stay in global markets and develop more into this space.
