2017 Placement at Llaeth Y Llan by Angharad Thomas

"It's hard to believe that a year has passed since starting my placement here at Llaeth y Llan, and what a year it has been. My placement started immediately after finishing second year at Harper Adams University where I study BSc (hons). Agri-food Marketing with business studies.

Ever since discovering Llaeth y Llan whilst on holiday in Conwy when I was younger, it has been a firm family favourite ever since, therefore working for the company has been a privilege. Having a mix of office work and visiting stores across Mid and North Wales, as well as the West Midlands area, it is fair to say that most days consists of a different challenge. One aspect of the work I have thoroughly enjoyed has been meeting customers, whether at agricultural shows such as the Royal Welsh Show and Anglesey County Show, Abergavenny food festival, or at various stores across North and Mid Wales.

With the recent launch of the three new flavours; Lemon, Natural with Honey and Fat Free Natural, I have enjoyed promoting these new flavours during in-store sampling sessions and hearing the customer's feedback. The opportunity to learn how family businesses, Wholesalers and Retailers work has also been of great benefit for me. Last, but not least, I'd like to thank everyone at Llaeth y Llan for the welcome I have received over the past year and also the opportunity to work for one of the leading welsh manufacturing companies. The opportunity has certainly given me the opportunity to develop as an individual. I'd like to wish Llaeth y Llan all success for the forthcoming years. Thank-you!"
