Two of our long serving colleagues have completed their last shift at Stateside Foods this January and are looking forward to their retirement…
Ismail Patel has worked for Stateside Foods for over 15 years and we wish him well as he commences his retirement.
Ismail was presented with a cheque by managers from his shift who congratulated and wished him well. He looks forward to spending time with his family in India.
“Ismail is a jovial character who clearly enjoys his job and prides himself on his hard work. For over 15 years, Ismail has been working here at Stateside Foods and although I have only been his team leader for short while, he is clearly very hard working, reliable and flexible. We can always rely on Ismail to cover other areas of production if needed and he does so without complaint. Ismail always works with a smile on his face and will be thoroughly missed by the team in Firebird. Good luck Ismail, all the best for the future and have a very Happy Retirement.”
Stephen Harrison has worked for Stateside Foods for 26 years and we wish him well as he begins his retirement.
Stephen was presented with a cheque by our Managing Director Jon and his manager Neil. He remembered Stateside Foods in the very early days when there was just one line and a good day was getting 11 pallets ready to go! He is looking forward to spending time with his family and his hobby- playing golf.
“I would like to thank Stephen Harrison after dedicating over two decades of exemplary service, as he embarks on a well-deserved retirement. His unwavering commitment and exceptional work ethic have significantly contributed to our team’s success and set a high standard of professionalism. We wish him a fulfilling and rewarding retirement. With a wealth of knowledge and experience helping newer members of the team both in management and on the shop floor find their feet- Thank you! He will be missed by all his colleagues to whom he has been a pillar to lean on over the years. Happy Retirement Stephen.”
