Why Interfood?
As a family-owned company, Interfood really values their employees and provides opportunities to grow within the company. I just started working at our Singapore office, which is a good example of the company giving their employees nice opportunities to work abroad and learn from different markets and cultures. Interfood made that possible for me and I am very grateful for that!

What do you expect from your new colleague?
We are a young and dynamic company which appreciates hard work but also a lot of fun! If you are ambitious, open to learn, willing to travel and commercially orientated, Interfood is your place to be.

What do you do in your spare time?
In my spare time I like to play tennis and go to the gym. But also drinking a beer at the beach is something which I very much like to do during the weekend. As I just moved to Singapore there is also a lot to see so I am spending a lot of time discovering this beautiful city!
