Works Council

Sligro Food Group has a single Works Council covering the entire Group in the Netherlands.

Single Works Council

It is the express wish of both the company and the Works Council to have a single Works Council in the Netherlnds. In this way, the Works Council reflects the organisational structure of the Group. Every level in the business has representatives on the Works Council but, within the Works Council, duties are allocated according to topic.

Enhancing the quality of the business

The law obliges us to have a Works Council but we view that ‘obligation’ as a blessing. Contributions from employees, whether formalised via a Works Council, coming out of day-to-day meetings or in some other connection, enhance the quality of the business or – as the slogan reflecting our corporate culture has it – there is ‘Strength in Unity’.


We believe that our Works Council must properly reflect the employees and activities within the Group. This is achieved by a constituency system, which adequately takes into account different geographical locations and the nature of activities.

A new Works Council was elected in February 2020 for a three-year term. The members elect the board from among their midst..
