The UK’s leading egg supplier – Noble Foods – has celebrated its first apprentices to successfully complete the Level 2 Certificate in Food and Drink at the company’s Gainsborough site.

Colleagues Madalin Patru, Adrian Anderson, Remi Salna, Agnieska Pierzchala, and Robert Coombe, were congratulated by Noble Foods CEO, Duncan Everett, and CFO, Alan Bergin. The accomplishment marks another significant milestone for professional development at Noble Foods in Gainsborough, which is home to the largest group of apprentices in Noble Foods operations.

The apprenticeship program at Noble Foods is designed to provide colleagues with the skills and knowledge necessary for a successful career in the food and drink industry. Through a combination of practical experience and theoretical learning, apprentices like Madalin, Adrian, Remi, Agnieska, and Robert have demonstrated dedication and commitment to their craft.

“We’re passionate about our people, supporting their career aspirations, and providing opportunities for colleagues here at Noble Foods”, said Louisa Hogarty, the company’s Group HR Director.

“I’m especially proud of our apprentices and the qualifications they’ve gained, they are our next generation and we’re pleased to support a variety of real-world skills. As part of being an ‘Includability’ employer, we are always looking to create a workplace culture which is inclusive, and we are continuing to look for new apprentices in the future”.

Along with celebrating the achievements of their apprentices, Duncan and Alan had the pleasure of meeting Belinda Brocklesby, recently promoted to Team Leader. Belinda’s dedication and leadership qualities have been instrumental in driving success within her team, and Noble Foods wishes her continued success in her new role.

Noble Foods is proud to invest in the development and growth of its employees, and these achievements highlight the company’s ongoing commitment to nurturing talent within the organisation. In addition to the newly qualified apprentices at Gainsborough, a cohort of apprentices cover a wide range of professional, skilled roles at Noble Foods, from engineers and drivers to HR and Poultry technicians.

Noble Foods has also worked with POULTEC to create a work and competency-based City & Guilds qualification and training course, the Diploma in Work-based Agriculture. As one of the largest, longest-standing employers in Lincolnshire area, the opportunity for the five new apprentices is further testament to the company’s commitment and footprint in the region.
