I enjoy working with Marel because although they are a huge organisation that continues to expand across the globe, they have still retained a family feel to the business. Everyone is so friendly and approachable, from our Regional Directors to our Territory Managers. It’s really rare to find a business so welcoming where it is clear that the senior management truly believe in the values of the organisation: Unity, Innovation and Excellence.
