Production and mixing department
Every day, the PRODUCTION TEAM, split into three areas of expertise, coordinates the various operations involved in packing thousands of jars of honey: this process begins with the MIXING OPERATORS who pour the drums of honey into a large hopper. From here, it flows through stainless steel pipes into maturing tanks, where it is stored until packing.
PACKING OPERATORS carefully supervise the entire process to ensure that the journey of jars through the plant, from filling to labelling, follows a precise order, through to preparation of the shrink-wrapped packs placed on pallets and in warehouses.
The ADMINISTRATION, SALES, MARKETING and COMMUNICATIONS departments work closely and liaise constantly with production departments to ensure smooth sales and communications operations.
