OUR HEROES

Agnes

Senior R&D Manager
Vesta Baking Solutions

“I love working for Vesta in Shanghai because the work combines what I am passionate about and good at, and we also we share the same values

towards food quality. Before joining Vesta, I was an artisan bakery chef and have always been passionate about French bakery and pastry. Using good quality ingredients to make excellent products was always essential for me. As a result of my culinary training and years of marketing experience I can explore ingredients and develop new products with a point of view different. I am glad that Vesta and I found each other.”

Neco

Purchasing Officer
Visco Selected Fine Foods

“I play an important part of the Visco team. The sales team count on me to have the right products in stock when their customers need them most.

I was born on a little island in the south of Brazil called Florianopolis. Florianopolis is well known for its beautiful beaches, seafood, and perfect weather conditions. I first fell in love with food in my mother’s kitchen.

My brothers and I would bring home fresh seafood caught at the local beach for Mum to make her traditional seafood feast known as a sequencia de camarao. Apetitoso (yum!) Dad worked for the first power company in Florianopolis and travelled throughout Brazil.

We would wait for Dad to return home with gifts of speciality salamis, chorizo, and cheeses he had bought from original providers on his business trips. My life changed forever one sunny day in Brazil, at the world cup football finals when I met my beautiful wife, Priscila. Priscila’s family are Italian and introduced me to a world of new cuisine. I fell in love with not only Priscila, but also pancetta, cheeses, pasta, and antipasto from all over Europe. Priscila and I shared a dream of traveling. We left our hometown to explore the world for 10 short months. 15 years later, and two beautiful children, we now call Australia home.

I am currently the Purchasing Officer for Visco Selected Fine Foods. I was very excited to be offered this opportunity as the role harnesses my passion for food and the very best quality product from around the world. I like that in my role, I play an important part of the Visco team. The sales team count on me to have the right products in stock when their customers need them most. I get out of bed every morning and smile.

We have a great team, right from our General Manager, through to our warehouse and logistics team. Everyone genuinely cares about the business and is keen to help each other succeed. I wouldn’t be anywhere else.”

Hanna

Sales Manager
Greenmount Foods, ANZ

“I love working for GreenMount Foods because it is not often you get to go to work and do what you love and are passionate about.

Having come from working in large corporate companies, I love my job at GreenMount Foods, as I get to help people realise their dreams and reach their food goals. To start with a customer from the inception of an idea and go on a journey with them through the development stages, tests and trials, brand development and refinement, to finally seeing the product come to life to be a successful thriving business – that’s what spins my wheels.

At GreenMount Foods, I am surrounded by professionals, who respect and value that vision and who have passion, drive and integrity. It makes for a dynamic, progressive and challenging company where we are treated as family, not a bunch of employees.

Our Company is committed to making this a first class company and our success will be a reflection of this dedication. With this type of leadership, I feel very proud and humbled to be a part of it.
Before joining GreenMount Foods, I worked with other large food multinational corporates such as Fonterra, Goodman Fielder & Cerebos.”

“We blend cultures and ideas to drive inspiration, which is at the heart of our business philosophy and success.”

– Allan MacDonald, CEO, PTG Food
