Three teenagers have been taken on as apprentices by a Fen potato supplier.
Louise Youles, 17, and 19 year olds Chelsea Elmer and Luke Cannon were chosen by Greenvale to be trained at its Floods Ferry site in March following a rigorous selection process.
The scheme is delivered through the University of Lincoln, which is the company’s training provider.
Each apprentice will spend two months at a time working in the various areas of production.
Rachel Thorold, learning and development co-ordinator, said, “This is a very exciting time for our company as these youngsters are the new future of the business.

“It’s the perfect opportunity for those with an interest in food manufacturing, who want to learn the process first hand, as opposed to in a classroom.
“We would like to see someone progress through the company and we aim to give each apprentice enough knowledge and understanding that gets them a job at the end of it.”
