Our graduate stories

Product Development


"I started the Graduate Scheme at apetito in July 2018. The main thing that attracted me to apetito was the values that they hold; it’s great to be part of a company that strives to make a real difference.
I started the Graduate Scheme at apetito in July 2018 as a product developer in the Specialist Nutrition team within New Product Development at apetito. My role has great variation which means it never gets boring."


Making a real difference in Product Development

I carry out research and recipe development to create delicious meals for those who are on a specialist diet. For example, I have assisted with ensuring all meals are compliant with the new IDDSI standards and am currently developing an exciting new range which I hope will make a real difference to our customers lives.
I’ve really enjoyed the responsibilities I have been given so far and look forward to seeing how I progress in the future!
