Our people

A place to develop and grow

Bolsius combines the best of two worlds: an entrepreneurial family company and a small, professional multinational. In this international environment, we work in cross-functional teams where everyone has room to develop and grow. We aspire to be as diverse as the people who enjoy our products. We strive daily for each Bolsius employee to feel safe, valued and included - so that all talents are used, and all voices are heard.

Our people

Denise (Marketing)
"I love the fact that my marketing job has a broad scope in Bolsius. And I am proud of our sustainability initiatives. We don't just talk about it - we actually DO it."

Michiel (Finance)
"I feel part of the business teams, inside of work and outside of work too. In a dynamic business there is always room for career development."

Luuk (Sales)
"It gives me a boost when I see our products in the restaurant or venue, on the shelf or - even better - in the house of friends and family."

Marcin (Finance)
"In Finance we help the business with relevant reports and spotting opportunities to be better every day."

Rafal (Production)
"In my work, I have a lot of freedom in activities to achieve results. I introduce technical improvements and develop my employees."
