Fruit of the month: Christiane Abel

Christiane Abel has been part of the team since May 1, 2023. In this interview, she talks about her specific areas of responsibility in quality assurance.

As a restaurant specialist and certified ecotrophologist (read: home economist and nutritionist), Christiane has already worked in nutrition therapy and product development. Now she contributes her know-how to the quality assurance department and to sustainability issues.

Christiane, what are your tasks in terms of sustainability?

In short: Diverse. For example, I check all steps along our supply chains for sustainability. This includes social, ecological and economic factors. So I check that our partners and suppliers produce food in the most environmentally friendly way possible.That there is no child labor, and that the collaboration is economically viable for everyone. This also means we are well prepared for the Supply Chain Act.

... so a super interface to quality management (QM)?

That's how it is. Here, too, I take care of various test reports and inspections together with my colleagues. As recently as June 2023, for example, we were again awarded the IFS certificate. For us in QM, however, this also means that we must constantly develop further in order to continue to maintain all requirements for future certifications.

Sounds challenging. And why did you choose PMM?

Honestly: I was super taken with the Tomato videos and the entire outward appearance. This self-irony coupled with great professionalism appealed to me straight away. Now, after my first two months, I am very happy that my feelings were not wrong and that I feel very comfortable in the team and with my job.

We're glad to hear that - great to have you!
