OUR 
 people

 now

We have long and meaningful relationships with our growers, farmers and suppliers – 50 years
long with our olive growers and over 30 with our basil farmers.
And there are a few handfuls of people who’ve worked at Sacla’ for over 30 years too.
We support food banks and charities within our local community.
Wherever we can.
And whenever is needed.
Each year we help to support a couple of students through their university years studying food
related subjects.
They come to us for work experience in their holidays.
And may even join our team after graduation. Amber graduated in 2020 and joined our busy
technical team.

 soon

By 2023 we will be supporting six students all together in their further education.
People matter.
