What made you want to come and work for Ekibio?
There were several factors. First of all, it’s a well-established company, and well-known in specialist organic stores. But above all I am very much interested in the benefits of a healthy diet, and I really believe in Ekibio’s values, especially its approach to environmentally-friendly production.
What do you like about your job?
The supply chain department acts like the lung of the company and I like the fact that I work there. We have to deal with so many different situations on a daily basis, there’s no typical routine. Finally, my colleagues in the purchasing department are great people to work with, and there’s a good atmosphere in our office every day.

Like I said, the atmosphere and the values, as well as the whole environment in general, which is dynamic and constantly evolving. Also, we work in a sector that deals with satisfying basic needs, and provides people with the chance of an organic and eco-responsible diet. Finally, the company’s CSR policy emphasises sustainable development and the well-being of employees at work, providing sports and sophrology sessions and other perks.
Why do you think Ekibio is a human enterprise?
Thanks to the working environment for employees in-house. Also, Ekibio provides support for farmers by creating partnerships. Through this effort, Ekibio has developed a business that remains focused on people and is socially responsible.
