158 Apprentice field trips Exploring the organic world As a family run company in a rural location we take special care of our apprentices Their training is not separate from our daily business but part of it And that s not just because we want to foster their development but also because we need them In addition to the transfer of knowledge in their specific fields we also want to open their eyes to the big wide organic world so they experience every step that our products take on the journey from production to shelf The latter can be either at a wholesaler or in one of the many or ganic shops here in Germany We also regularly visit our own coffee roastery so that the apprentices can experience our full range of products And we say experience because they trace every step of our production and of course are able to sample every product But the wide world of organic products has more to offer than just tea coffee and spic es Our apprentices also come into contact with other companies and products not least in our organic bistro and on visits to various trade fairs They are always very curious to discover more So the apprentices can also suggest places they d like to go on their next excursion A chocolate factory A beverage manufacturer A bakery Twice a year our apprentices stretch their wings beyond Diepholz to gain new impressions of the wider world And when you re already out and about why not enjoy some arts and culture as well Depending on the destination they also go to exhibits or participate in city tours In addition to learning the field trips also foster team spirit among the apprentices through a lot of fun and social interaction At the end of the day they return with a store of new knowledge and often some deli cious treats as well looking forward to their next excursion 6 Nature and people
