Why Interfood?
Interfood is a very dynamic company with a pleasant and open atmosphere. The dynamics ensure a lot of variety in the work. Interfood is also very flexible. If you indicate and interest in something, they always look at how this curiosity can be fulfilled.

What do you expect from your new colleague?
Someone who is socially skilled, has knowledge about dairy products and can stand their ground.

What do you do in your spare time?
Like most of my colleagues in the technical service department, I like everything that has to do with food and drinks (often, you will find a home-made treat in our department). To compensate a little bit of all these calories, I am also a fanatic sporter. You will see me quite often in the gym downstairs, but I also dance and do crossfit, and sometimes I play some tennis. I'm also always up for a party, so I really hope that something will occur soon.
