The ingredients of Perfetti Van Melle, does it include your taste?

You will work at the third largest confectionery group in the world - and second in Europe. But we want to continue to grow and become the best at making candy, where we can use all the help of our colleagues!


We see our employees as the most important ingredient and therefore we have something for everyone:

  • Empowering: Everyone has every opportunity to develop and make a difference. For example, we have a huge range of (tailor-made) training courses.
  • Fun: Who doesn't actually dream of working at a candy factory? We would also like to maintain our family atmosphere, because that makes us unique and has brought us to where we are today. We do everything to make you feel at home with us, such as an annual beach volleyball and hockey tournament. But also an annual CSR day to be committed to the community.
  • Innovation: We must respond to the ongoing social debate on sugar and health, but also to deal with issues such as: environmental pollution, packaging and food safety. Enough challenges!
  • Dynamic: It may sound cliché, but with branches in more than 30 countries, we are a dynamic and vibrant organization.
