Get the best out of yourself


Do you have it in you?

Sharp, Connected and Brave. Those are Vion’s core values. We challenge you. We motivate you, we coach you. To get the best out of yourself and your colleagues, to be distinctive. To develop yourself and to make the difference in the international Vion world. We give you room to grow. Do you have the guts to give your ambition free rein?

We are well aware that our success hinges on the efforts, commitment, motivation and, of course, well-being of our employees. We consider them our most important asset. Obviously, this requires a proactive HR policy that centres around the further development of employees and the organisation. We offer our employees a good and competitive package of benefits. We invest in education and further training and offer a safe and healthy working environment.

Vion Academy

Working at Vion means helping to build future-proof, sustainable chains. Contributing towards the development of the food of tomorrow. Vion makes the difference, within the supply chain and beyond. At Vion, everything revolves around ‘growth’. Business growth as well as personal growth. With our Vion Academy, the training portal for all Vion employees, we ensure that you can reach your full potential. From staying motivated, raising the bar just that little bit, to developing yourself with subject-oriented courses, language courses, occupational health and safety training and Supply Chain modules; Vion Academy is the platform where all training and courses are clustered.

The starting point is your personal employee journey. It ensures that you can get the best out of yourself. That you seize the opportunities when they arise and that you look beyond the here and now. Vion Academy offers a powerful platform where all our training and courses are clustered. Language courses, occupational health and safety training, the VOS (Vion Operating System) and Supply Chain and Finance Modules: you can find it all in our e-learning environment.

Working at Vion offers you the opportunity to learn in the workplace and immediately apply in practice the knowledge that you have gained in a training or course. In addition to our own Vion Academy, we explore together with you what possibilities there are for development for which our Academy does not offer a suitable solution. In other words: we facilitate your personal employee journey in all possible ways to boost your career at Vion.

Fit, motivated
and skilled employees


Sustainable employability

How do colleagues stay fit, motivated and resilient? How can you ensure that colleagues continue to enjoy their work? These are important questions at Vion. With the ‘ik blijf vers’ (I stay fresh) programme, Vion places a strong focus on sustainable employability. Comprising a range of versatile tools, the programme contributes to fit, motivated and skilled employees. Certainly something to be really proud of!

The ‘ik blijf vers’ sustainable employability programme is currently implemented at our Dutch sites as a continuous improvement programme. The programme is based on three pillars:

  1. ‘Skilled and Agile’;
  2. ‘Vital and Resilient’;
  3. ‘Passion and Motivation’.

At Vion the door
is always open



Diversity is an important theme within an international company such as Vion. In fact, it is one of our Good Business Practices. Our organisation has production locations in the Netherlands and Germany and sales support offices throughout the world. Therefore we consider it important to consciously deal with cultural differences and backgrounds.

Within Vion, not all employees are the same, but all of them are equal. Our door is open for you, regardless of whether you are a man or a woman, young or old, what nationality you have or what religion you adhere to.  We believe that every person should have equal job opportunities. By working together with municipalities and organisations, we also stimulate the employment of people with an occupational impairment, labour migrants and refugees at our organisation.

Sharp, Connected, Brave. That is what we are. We create new opportunities, we lead the way and we connect. We build future-proof, sustainable chains and contribute to the development of the food of tomorrow. We make the difference, within the supply chain and beyond. And we are proud of that.
