Learn more about the dynamic and international working environment in our company.
Our staff of around 50 makes Henry Lamotte Food what it is today: a leading quality supplier of a wide range of international food products for the processing industry and food trade. In order to achieve this success, the colleagues always contribute their individual skills into one common unit.
They can always rely on a corporate culture which still combines modern values with the best of Hanseatic business tradition. Here at Henry Lamotte Food, we have been relying on fair, sustainable relationships with employees, customers, suppliers and service providers since 1925. We are proud of our extensive market knowledge, and at the same time it is our great commitment, particularly to our renowned customers across Europe and far beyond.
International work environment
Our working together benefits the individual as well as the company.
How we interact with each other
Our colleagues, each in his or her own special way, are characterised by competence, motivation, team spirit and identification with the family-operated company. We promote these characteristics by implementing flat hierarchies and short decision-making processes, opportunities to have a say in the company as well as individual further training opportunities. Open, respectful and proactive communication is key to our work environment. It is therefore an essential component to successfully fulfilling the daily, ever-changing challenges of our diverse business. We strive to achieve such cooperation within the teams and with the executive managers. This applies not only to our day-to-day work but also to one-on-one feedback-meetings between the staff and executive managers at least once a year. The purpose of the meeting is to facilitate an open exchange of information about operational matters, objectives, targets, collaboration and development in the past and in the upcoming year.
