My experience at HACO has been an unforgettable, fruitful and wonderful one. From the day I first started to the last days, it was all a process of learning, working, integrating and socializing at the
same time.

Food Safety Team at HACO

I was immensely exposed to the laboratory work environment and worked in the analytics and microbiology laboratories. I was able to learn how to work with many machinery and different equipment which I previously had very little experience with and also able to see other parts of the Company.
I was very glad that I could be of great use when help was needed to complete certain tasks or to carry out certain projects which were previously put on hold. Because of this, I felt part of the team. My HACO colleagues were wonderful as well. They were very patient with me and were always available whenever I needed help with anything and I am very thankful for that.

Leisure activities with host family Bigler at work in the lab

My host family was simply amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better family to be in. They were loving, caring, fun, considerate, committed and religious. The children were very sweet and were always willing to show me new things. They made me feel part of the family from the first day and exposed me to typical Swiss traditions, culture and lifestyle and also many Swiss tourist attractions.
I whole heartedly appreciate every moment I spent with them.
