About the employer

Apetito is a welcoming and rewarding company to work for. It has lots of different types of customers and the factory is right here in Trowbridge so we can see, smell and at lunchtime taste what we make. We also make food for some of the most vulnerable parts of society, so staff feel they are making a real difference.  All our employees, as part of learning about the company in their first few weeks, spend time learning about the business such as helping in the factory, visiting customers with a delivery driver, and visiting our giant freezer – our warehouse near Bristol where the temperature is minus 16 degrees! This really helps the people that join understand the many business units and their challenges.
