On May 7th, Flemish Minister of Education, Hilde Crevits, visited Greenyard Frozen Belgium following the Food@Work Techno Awards.
The Food @ Work Techno Awards puts companies in the spotlight that make special efforts to integrate students from technical secondary and higher education in food processing companies. These awards are a nice collaboration between food industry and education to meet the high need for technical employees.
The interesting tour in the production site was followed by a debate concerning the importance of technical education for the food processing industry.
Head of our technical team, Filip Delputte, was already in the spotlights at various technical schools with his training board for frequency switches. Trainee Jelle Garsbeke is working on this success and is making a test board for frequency switches, which Greenyard Frozen will use effectively.
