Our culture


That feeling when you belong somewhere 
When we asked our employees what they thought makes Marel unique, most of them agreed it's our culture. This is what we do to nurture an atmosphere where everyone can thrive.

We don't compete against
​​​​​​​each other

At least not in a ruthless way. Instead, we help each other succeed. We listen when someone comes with a suggestion and give our people the autonomy to experiment with their ideas. We know that if our people grow, we grow with them.

Everyone has a seat at the table​​​​​​​

Diverse people bring diverse experience, and ensuring everyone is included and can bring their best selves to work is something we continually strive for. Diverse and inclusive workforces make businesses more innovative, creative and profitable. For our people to remain continually motivated, driven and (more importantly) fulfilled, we aim to create an environment where everyone can be themselves at work. That way, everyone can feel recognized, valued and respected.

We take our commitments seriously

Treating people right, whether they're our employees, partners or customers, is at the heart of how we do business. We support the communities in which we operate, by upholding our values of Unity, Innovation and Excellence. We take pride in encouraging equal opportunities, promoting a healthy work-life balance, providing equal pay for equal work and valuing a culture of diversity and inclusion.

We listen to our people​​​​​​​

When we say your opinion counts, we mean it. As we grow, our annual engagement survey ensures we keep in touch with how our colleagues are feeling across the globe. It tells us what's working (and not) and what we need to do more of to make Marel the best place to work.

We put our people's well-being first

Safety is our priority. We are on a journey towards Zero Harm, committed to creating a safe workplace for you, your colleagues, contractors and visitors. We provide everyone at our customers' sites, as well as our own manufacturing sites and workshops, with the best possible safety protection. As well as physical wellbeing, we focus on mental wellbeing for our people, ensuring they take time off when they need to in order to maintain or improve their mental health.

We genuinely care about the world

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. With the world’s population expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, there is a growing need to process and produce food in a way that is sustainable, cost-effective, and resource-efficient. We help the food processing industry responsibly manage limited resources, setting the foundation for sustainable growth. Our groundbreaking solutions help reduce waste while improving yields. We also work towards continuously lowering our energy expenditure and using renewable resources wherever possible.
