Young people have been learning about the ‘world of work’ at an Old Leake food production company.
As part of the Princes Trust, the eight youngsters visited Bakkavor’s ‘Fresh Meal Solution’s site.

The firm has an ongoing partnership with the Princes Trust.

The eight were given a tour of the site, learned about Bakkavor and its role in the food industry, saw the site in action on a guided tour, participated in a food tasting, and a CV and interview workshop.

Pippa Greenslade, HR director at Bakkavor, said: “We believe initiatives such as this can inspire today’s youth to become tomorrow’s industry 
leaders.”
