Associated British Foods - Grocery

ABF is divided into five main business areas: Sugar, Agriculture, Ingredients, Retail and Grocery. The Grocery group is made up of eight businesses that manufacture and distribute a wide variety of well-known food and drink brands, from Blue Dragon, Kingsmill and Ryvita to Silver Spoon, Twinings and many more!

Each business operates independently from one another, partly so that we can be flexible and stay close to our markets.  We still share the same ethos and down-to-earth, open culture which ABF prides itself on. 

At ABF we believe that you do most of your learning on the job, so from day one of your 18-month or two-year grocery graduate scheme, you will be given a real part to play in the growth and development of your business. The ABF graduate schemes are designed to challenge you and equip you with the experience you’ll need to become a future leader. It might sound intimidating but don’t fret! ABF are aware that most of you will have only just graduated from university when you start the graduate scheme, so they’ll tailor the roles and provide you with support along the way. Alongside this you will also complete a structured programme of both functional and general leadership training with your fellow graduates.

Sounds great right? Now we’ve got you hooked, the final thing you need to do is to apply for the scheme that suits your interests the most. The schemes span across 7 different functions: Supply Chain and Operations, Customer Development, Engineering, Marketing, Procurement, HR and Technical.
