Dynamic and Diverse Teams
People and food – what else matters in life? Seriously though, at Solina our passion for good food means we love working with people who feel the same. As creative and passionate problem-solvers, we relish taking on our clients’ challenges to devise and deliver the food solutions they need.
Our approach is based on teamwork, mutual respect, and an open, customer-focused mindset. With such a multicultural workforce, Solina has learned to genuinely value cultural differences and individual authenticity. We foster a positive atmosphere of trust and honesty that motivates us to give our best and empowers us to aim higher.
Also, we take our work seriously but without being too serious. Located on more than 20 family-sized sites, we enjoy getting to know each other through lots of internal or informal events that forge team bonds.

For several decades now, our teams have drawn upon a fusion of taste, texture and nutrition to deliver sensory food experiences to consumers. This success can only be achieved thanks to our passion, creativity and also plenty of expertise and knowledge. We believe that personal development and empowerment combined with our shared energy and enthusiasm will lead to stronger performance. What do we do to foster personal development? Here are just a few of our initiatives:
We have designed dedicated Solina Training modules in Management, Project Management and Sales for our employees through our internal Sol’N School programme. The programme simultaneously strengthens team cohesion by bringing people from all the sites together and consolidates our shared skills and values.
To keep pace with our strong growth, Solina has created a unique European programme delivered by our passionate Solina Experts. This two-year course allows us to integrate and train a new generation of passionate, engaged technical food sales support who masters Solina’s expertise.
We encourage external benchmarks and open collaboration as often as possible. Our teams are involved in several projects: MEATyL@b, an ambitious programme to research and develop next-generation meat substitutes, and the AAginov project which aims to create a range of culinary solutions adapted to the specific needs of the elderly.
Our strength lies in the energy and ideas of our teams and this is how we future-proof our company. Our customers need a forward-looking partner they can trust to keep them abreast of emerging market trends and food industry innovations. We lead the way, always scouting for fresh ideas, networking widely with one finger firmly on the pulse, so we can anticipate where the market’s going and stay a step ahead.
Resourcefulness and creative energy are highly valued at every level of the company. We pride ourselves on our open mindset and out-of-the-box thinking, because “crazy” ideas lie behind some of the most successful innovations. To give you an example of our innovative ingenuity, one of our multidisciplinary collaborations gave rise to our groundbreaking – and award-winning – original concept Chick’n Tin: marinated chicken fillets, a natural and healthy ready-to-use meal solution, in a tin.
We also invest extensive resources in our Future Foods project as we aim to lead the way to good food and better lifestyles.
