HACO AG is a food production company located in Gümligen near Berne in Switzerland. The company is known for individual and innovative food products and currently employs a workforce of 370 persons. It produces soluble coffee, seasonings, processed foodstuffs, bouillons and numerous mixed products such as soups, sauces and ready-to-serve meals.

Working in the lab...

It has been a pleasure to work at HACO AG, and I have gained much practical knowledge on microorganisms and realising different analysis in the lab. I particularly enjoyed gaining skills which are of significant value to me. I appreciate that I was afforded the opportunity to take on significant responsibility because someone of the team was on maternity leave. Treated as a staff member and not as intern provided me with a depth of knowledge I would not have gained in the classroom alone.

I am very grateful to my host families Imhof and Bigler for opening up their homes to me and offering me the opportunity to experience Switzerland’s culture, values and lifestyles.

What a nice young lady!

They were really good to me and we made several trips to see places and do some activities together.
