Quality and Development

HUG as an employer

At HUG, there is still time for important things

Familie & Freizeit

Whatever task you perform at HUG, it should allow you to maintain a stable work-life and work-family balance.

Part-time work and job sharing
Individual part-time work and job sharing give you more freedom for leisure, family, private plans and many more projects.
Various patterns of shift work
Different shift patterns and predefined cycles give our employees more flexible time off during the week. The night premium amounts to an additional 25%. We don't work weekends (production stops on Saturdays by noon at the latest).
Mobile working
Avoiding rush-hour commutes, enjoying flexible working hours, reducing our impact on the environment – mobile working allows this and much more when on-site presence is not essential.
Annualisation of working time
We focus on completing tasks rather than specific working times. The annualisation of working time contributes to a more flexible organisation of work and to compensate for seasonal fluctuations. Should this not be enough, employees can also take unpaid leave.

Apology culture
You prefer pragmatic and unconventional approaches to finding solutions? At HUG, you can try, dare and find out your own limits in terms of responsibility. Becaus we believe that trying and sometimes failing is better than not trying at all.

Development is a key part of the process from an idea up to its commercial maturity. Quality assurance guarantees the excellent quality of our products.

The bakery
Our development includes the creative process, the design and the manual testing of products in our bakery before we proceed with a test run on our production facilities. We develop entirely new products and also transform and modify existing recipes.
Tasting
Whenever the HUG meeting space smells of fresh bakery products, it means that our tasting experts are in the middle of a tasting session. Various products are tasted regularly and improved if necessary.

At HUG, we value you

We call each other «du». We are enthusiastic and passionate about what we do and we are committed to our common values.

Quality requirements
Regarding the quality of foodstuffs, the requirements become increasingly stringent in terms of nutritional value, health and sustainability aspects, appearance and taste, etc. We keep up high quality standards in every aspect of daily operation, from the purchase of raw materials up to the loading of our products.
The five senses
Our tasting experts regularly assess the quality of our products using their five senses. They focus on consistency, smell, colour, shape, etc. This is how we make sure that our consumers always get a high-quality product.
