Actions speak louder than words

  • Lesaffre recruits 1,100 new employees every year, in 3 main areas of activity: Production, Sales and R&D.
  • Through Sales, our main focus is on developing new business (nutrition, health, emerging markets, etc.)
  • Our R&D department represents 6% of our recruiting actions in 2019 (60 positions filled)

A myriad of reasons to go with us:

  • A strong sense of responsibility: Every day, we protect the planet and feed its population through solutions devised with a care for people and the environment they live in.
  • Real opportunities for internal mobility: We forge links between different areas of the company to give our employees access to what they need and what they need to learn.
  • A multinational group organized as a SME network: This set-up is ideal, since it affords the opportunities that only large companies can offer, while maintaining a corporate culture in which people come first. Our international reach gives everyone the challenge of new markets to break into.
