Why Interfood?
Already 21 years ago Interfood was brought under my attention by coincidence. It turned out to be a very positive change in my career. I have seen Interfood growing into a global leading company. But Interfood, as a family owned company, always kept it’s “family feeling” which I find very comfortable. Interfood takes very good care of it’s employees.
