“I like that the company has supported me through both good and hard times.”
In 2006, Sirinut K. came to Canada through a contract program, ready to work hard in a local greenhouse’s packing area. Sirinut is originally from Thailand, but a few years ago she officially became a permanent resident in Canads, and she is now a full-time employee at our Warehouses working on our Packing lines!
Ever since starting with our team at Nature Fresh Farms, Sirinut has liked the work she does: “I enjoy working on our Packing lines. Peppers are my favorite product to pack, but since our farms aren’t picking Peppers yet this season, I’m helping at our new Warehouse packing Tomatoes. I also get along well with my team and my Supervisors which is good!”
Not only does Sirinut like the people she works with – she also appreciates our company’s culture and support: “Everyone here is very nice and the place is always clean. Last year I also went to Thailand for a family matter, and the company kept my position for me so I could start working again when I got back. They even sent me flowers – I really appreciated that.”
One activity Sirinut enjoys when she’s not working is shopping! While shopping locally is great, Sirinut and her husband will occasionally get away for the weekend and take a trip to Toronto to shop, especially in the Chinatown area.
Working on our Packing lines means Sirinut needs to pay close attention to details and stay organized while packing our products for shipment. It’s also up to Sirinut to keep her work area organized and clean, following all workplace food safety policies and procedures. Sirinut is one of our #GrowToPeople!
