"At Mars R&D we’re always innovating and looking for ways to push the boundaries. This motivates us to keep learning, growing and developing as professionals.
There’s a great feeling of accomplishment when I see the products I worked on in the freezers at the grocery store. Hard work always pays off and seeing the results of the work at the store down the street is rewarding."
