We are thrilled to announce that our Technical Sales Lead for Steam Infusion, Kyle Constable, has been named as the Apprentice of the Year at the Food and Drink Federation (FDF) awards 2019! Largely seen as the industry benchmark for innovation, competitiveness and talent, the awards ceremony saw Kyle fight off tough competition to be presented with the Apprentice of the Year accolade. With over 500 guests coming together to celebrate the achievements in the industry, this award is a true testament to the hard work put in by Kyle over the course of his apprenticeship so far.

The FDF Apprentice of the Year is awarded to the individual who has shown exceptional progress in both their skills and studies and are real pioneers with potential to become industry leaders. Kyle has been a degree apprentice with OAL for two years now, having originally joined as a Process Development Trainee. He excelled in his position and after only 10 months was promoted to Technical Sales Lead. He is currently completing a degree in Food and Drink Manufacturing Operations Management at the University of Lincoln, all while promoting our innovative Steam Infusion technology across the UK and Europe. 

But it isn’t just his own personal development that is so important to Kyle. He uses all his experience to show students that there are many different ways to be successful after leaving school and takes every opportunity to encourage them to consider a career in engineering. We are really pleased for Kyle and it is great to see that all his hard work has been recognised and has truly paid off.
