RECOGNISING LONG SERVICE MILESTONES WITH CELEBRATORY LUNCH

Attending a special celebratory lunch, the employees, who together have clocked up 345 years of service, were presented with a certificate, gift voucher and luxury food hamper as the brand recognised the contribution that each staff member has made throughout their time with the business.

Jackie Collins, Technical Assistant, has worked at HARIBO for 40 years and was among those commended during the lunch. She comments:

“We had such a fantastic afternoon. It was lovely to look back and reminisce about all that’s changed during my time at the business. It’s hard to believe that when I first started things were made by hand, including Pontefract Cakes!”

Speaking of her proudest achievement during her time at HARIBO, Jackie adds:

“Many years ago, I was told that I would never work due to my disability. I’m extremely proud to have proved those people wrong, having now worked in a job that I love for 40 years.”

With manufacturing facilities in both Pontefract and Castleford, HARIBO has become a leading employer within the local area. As a result, the business often employs more than one generation of the same family.

Just one example of this is Colin Westwood, Confectionery Process Worker, who has worked at the organisation for 25 years. He comments:

What I love most about HARIBO is the people. They’re not just work colleagues but friends too. My favourite memory is meeting my best mate, although he was more like my brother. Since then, my son has also started working for the business as an engineer. It’s a great solid unit with a real family atmosphere.”

Also, among those commended during the lunch was Steve Noble, National Accounts Manager, who is celebrating 25 years in his role. He comments:

“I couldn’t be prouder of the journey that the business has been on during my 25 years. Knowing that I’ve been a part of all that we have achieved is incredible. I was one of three team members that helped to launch Starmix, which has since gone on to become one of our most iconic treats on the market. That is definitely one of my many career highlights!”

Keeping it in the family, Steve’s son, Ed Noble has also joined the team at HARIBO as National Accounts Executive.

Recognising the importance that our people have had in shaping the brand’s success, Jon Hughes, Managing Director of HARIBO UK and Ireland, comments:

 

“At the heart of HARIBO is its team. Each and every member of our team contributes to our story in their own way. To have people who have been with us for so many years really is an achievement. We’re extremely thankful to all those who have helped us on our journey to becoming the much-loved brand that we are today.”
