Who you'll work with

We are a purpose-led organisation

Our purpose, Making every day taste better, defines and inspires us in everything we do.

Underpinning our purpose is the Greencore Way, this helps describe both who we are and how we will succeed...

The Greencore Way

This reflects the things we know make us stand head and shoulders above our competitors - because they’re our point of difference - we call them our differentiators. They are People at the CoreGreat Food, Excellence and Sustainability.

People at the Core

People will always be at our core… without our colleagues, there is no Greencore. So, how do we demonstrate this? What do we focus on?

We embed a safety culture
Safety is our priority, first and foremost, in every decision we make. We don’t just do what’s required, we also provide support and adviceacross a wide spectrum of safety and wellbeing issues too.

We provide inspiring leadership
Every colleague can inspire us in their actions and how they get things done. Giving time and energy to people, being inclusive and open, showing
empathy and passion is inspirational and lights the way for others.

We build engaging and effective teams
We take the time to get to know people in our teams, recognising strengths and helping each other to grow. Our teams thrive by exchanging ideas,
supporting each other and demonstrating respect.

Great Food

This underpins our dedication to food safety, taste and quality.

Protecting food safety
We source, store and prepare our Great Food to the highest food safety standards every day. Our customers and their consumers can trust what we place on the shelves.

Leading on taste
We work hard to innovate and improve recipes and technologies to deliver
delicious taste.

Winning on quality
We care deeply about the experience we deliver to consumers and take great care in assuring food quality, from the nutritional value, colour and texture, to the packaging it reaches them in.


Excellence is what we strive for – it’s about how we work every day to do what we do better.

Building capability
We learn collectively and repeatably from our actions and problem-solving activities, how we develop skills and deep expertise across business activities.
We develop our business to differentiate us from competitors.

Driving efficiency
We identify opportunities to get better through careful measurement of business performance in all it’s forms.

Delivering value
We make sure what we do is delivering value for all our stakeholders – understanding where value for one group might diminish value for others and managing the necessary trade-offs for the best outcome.


Our sustainability agenda impacts every aspect of our business operation - how we source, how we make food and how we take our products into the wider world.

Sourcing with integrity
We source ingredients with transparency about how, where, and from who we buy our raw materials. We care about the protection of human rights
and take action to support climate change.

Making with care
We think about how we can use less to make more and we have initiatives to tackle food waste.

Feeding with pride
We care about packaging our food in the lowest environmentally-impacting way. We provide accessible, healthy, nutritious food and we raise our voice to inspire action on food policy. We invest in our local communities by supporting charities, schools, food banks and other initiatives.
