Company Culture

At Gehl Foods, we value teamwork, a healthy work-life balance, sustainability and community outreach. Although we employ more than 400 people, we enjoy a small company feel, with a collaborative work environment and a healthy mix of new and experienced experts across departments.

We offer training and mentorship opportunities to interested employees. We take professional development seriously and view it as one of the keys to our success.
