Mars is one of the world’s largest family owned companies, with globally over 40.000 associates. In the Netherlands we operate from two sites, in Veghel and Oud-Beijerland. Mars Veghel is Mars Incorporated’s largest chocolate factory and the national sales office for Snackfood and Petcare. In Oud-Beijerland main meal products such as Oriental and Mediterranean sauces and soups are produced. Both sites play an important part in Mars Inc, as they include an innovation centre for new products, marketing strategies and techniques. In The Netherlands about 1450 passionate people daily contribute to the success of our world renowned company.
We welcome people who like to grow and take own responsibility and initiative in an environment that offers a lot of freedom. Wageningen University and the other European based Food Science universities involved in the Masters Program are important educational centres for new talents for our global organisation. We would like to be involved in guaranteeing the successful continuation of the great initiative of the European Masters for Food Studies. By participating as a partner in the program we can keep in touch with our future!
