Trainee Power at Bode
We offer apprenticeships in seven different trades. Our trainee project team regularly works together on complex topics. They have just developed the new product "Bruchkernmischung bio" from the idea to market maturity. Arne Butkereit is in his second year of training as an e-commerce merchant: "I particularly like the contact with the other trainees and the insight into the different areas of work." Svenja Stang, assistant to the management, supervises the team: "Here, for example, the trainees train independent work, team skills, organization and creativity." And what's the next project? Kirstin Umland from Marketing: "Sustainability is an important topic at Bode. We're planting a large insect bed and creating a nice place for employees to take a break in the green." We will report!
Christmas greetings and review of the year
The year 2020 has challenged us, we have seen an opportunity in the changes and have invested a lot in the digital infrastructure. That is why we are still on track in this difficult year and now employ over 100 people. You can rely on us; as an IFS-certified, food-producing company, safety, hygiene and quality are our top priorities. We would like to thank all our customers, suppliers and business partners for the trust they have placed in us. This is reflected not least in the large number of new customers. We look to the future with confidence and look forward to the next year in good cooperation! Stay healthy! On behalf of the entire team, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
Mirko Grosch, Frank Bode and Thomas Walter (from left)
Zero Waste - info page and forum
We have accompanied and supplied the Unverpackt shops for several years and are pleased about the steady growth of the Unverpackt concept. We are proud to be a part of this movement and would like to continue to support it and offer the appropriate products and services.
The Unverpackt scene finally has its own place on our website and with its own forum a place for individual exchange, clarification of questions and space for surveys. The individual info page is tailored to the individual needs of the Unverpackt shops.
Corona crisis - together we can do it!
The current situation presents us all with completely new challenges and we have to adapt to new situations every day. We would like to explain briefly how we deal with the current situation. As an IFS-certified food producing company, safety, hygiene and quality are our top priorities.
Wherever possible, our employees work from their home office. In logistics and production we work in shifts with only as many employees as necessary at the same time. Strict hygiene measures as well as strict rules of conduct and visitor regulations apply everywhere. The crisis team reassesses the situation daily and adapts the measures accordingly. We are well positioned despite everything!
In order to secure the supply, we are in permanent exchange with our suppliers from all over the world. Our warehouses are well filled.
