Employee Appreciation

I started with Bel Brands this year, and I can say that it is proving to be one of the best career decisions I have ever made. I really enjoy the people I work with and the energy and enthusiasm they bring to their work. Bel is an organization that truly cares about its people having a work life balance. I have been extremely impressed with their commitment to recognizing those individuals who go above and beyond their normal duties. The level of appreciation shown to its employees has been extremely motivating to me. I also enjoy the autonomy that you get once you have gain the trust of the leadership team. This is absolutely, without a doubt a great place to work!

With management support and training, the production and support teams at Brookings work together to produce the highest quality product in a safe and productive manner. Everybody contributes on a daily basis, finding ways to improve the way we run product. My co-workers and I take pride in our work and strive to make a product the customer will be satisfied with, and management always seeks out our input regarding how our process is running. The best thing about working at Bel is being rewarded and acknowledged for a job well done, and the encouragement we get along the way.

Chicago Headquarters

Bel has provided extensive cross-functional experiences that will help me achieve my career goals. When I worked in our Marketing department, I was able to transition between brands and gain knowledge of new categories. I was then successfully able to transition with full support from both departments. It is truly fun to work at a place that invests heavily into building its brands and people. Bel Brands is focused on growth, which provides a lot of excitement and career opportunities. The culture is supportive of change and encourages new ideas.

30 Years at Bel

Assistant Supervisor

Leitchfield Facility

I started as a part-time student in high school and have been with Bel for 30 years—I now oversee the packaging process of our cheeses. Bel benefits are great (for example, for our new hires health benefits start on day one), but working here means more than just that. In the years I have worked at Bel I’ve met many great people, and real friendships have developed. When people come to Bel they stick around, and when you’re with these people over the years they become your family. We all work together and care about each other, and are committed to helping our coworkers and watching out for them. I can watch employees and know they care, that they want to produce a top quality product and are committed to doing so. We all want to be the best Bel plant, and I feel we will make it! Some days it gets a little chaotic, but I love a challenge, am very happy at Bel, and actually love my job.
