Are you a marketing or business management student and looking for an internship? Do you have a passion for data management and food? At Aviko we have your challenge ready!

What will you be doing?

Potato products are prepared in a wide range of foodservice kitchen systems. Think about the stor-age conditions, preparation and service of the potato products at e.g. restaurants like McDonalds and Burger King, but also at hospitals and in canteens. We already have a lot of knowledge about these kitchen systems, but it is of strategic relevance to use this knowledge to its full potential for e.g. the development and improvement of our products. Therefore, we want to set up a system how to gather, save and use this information. Your help is needed!
The internship will exist out of the following components:

  • Gain insight in kitchen systems through relevant literature
  • Set up a theoretical framework for kitchen systems in foodservice
  • Get to know kitchen systems used for potato products at end users
  • Collect insights in what knowledge about kitchen systems is of importance for Aviko to sup-port product and concept development
  • If time allows, advise on how to save the data
  • Enrolment in a Marketing or Business Management course, like the master Management, Economics and Consumer Studies
  • An interest in using data and analytics to understand customers and kitchens systems
