Cream Awards Winners 2021!
We are delighted to be the joint winner of the Supply Industry Dairy Employer of the Year Award at the 2021 Cream Awards. The win was announced on Tuesday 2 February as part of this year’s online Cream Awards ceremony.
The Cream Awards - Dairy Industry Trade Awards - are organised by British Dairying magazine to showcase some of the brightest and best people, businesses and innovations the industry has to offer.
Caroline Bendelow, People and Organisational Development Director for Mole Valley Farmers says:
“We’re delighted to be recognised with this award. The people in our business are what make us successful and show Mole Valley Farmers’ commitment to UK agriculture every day. We’ve worked hard as an employer to improve our engagement with staff, provide quality training and development and give genuine opportunities for career progression.
“Our people are at the heart of our organisation and as an employer we are proud of the way they have navigated the pandemic, ensuring we continue to provide all our services to our farmers and customers.”
The Cream Awards judges specifically highlighted the enviable way in which the business has navigated the Covid-19 crisis, highlighting the fact the NHS has looked to Mole Valley Farmers to learn about colleague care and support delivery mechanisms.
The business is looking forward to the path ahead as it starts to develop new apprenticeship opportunities to attract and develop the next generation of high calibre people into the industry.
“These are genuinely exciting times for Mole Valley Farmers and for our farmer members and customers as we work with them to improve their farm profitability, productivity and sustainability,” Caroline says.
