What is your role at TOMRA Food?

I support Sales to sell more machines 😊 Customers need solutions for their problems, so sales managers and I try to find the best solutions for them. Which machine, with what configurations, the correct position, and more. I do tests and demos for customers and create reports, so when customers want to see results before buying, that means it's showtime for me.
On the other hand, we work on new applications as a SASE, creating application packages to guide people interested in these applications.
So, when people have questions, we have answers. 😊

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL BOLA SURENDRA KAMATH & SONS, INDIA

Bola Surendra Kamath & Sons (BSK) started in the early 1940s when the enterprising Mr. Bola Raghavendra Kamath began trading commodities.

He envisioned pioneering a prosperous cashew industry in the coastal city of Mangalore, and in 1958, it was time to take the first step in fulfilling his dream. This year is now etched in the history books, laying the foundation for the cashew processing industry in Mangalore, as Mr. Bola’s idea came to fruition.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL GUMZ, USA

When it came to the weather, they had a good idea of what conditions to expect each season, literally writing the book on it in their annual publications that even today, are more accurate than the local meteorologist. Even still, the best almanac couldn’t have predicted chapters on unexpected market surges and social distancing protocols.
