From nearby Cargo, Leanne Pearce is about to celebrate her first anniversary working with the BiteRiot team.
Leanne joined the team with an accounting background.
“I have a new understanding of fruit having worked here,” she said. “I love the people here. There are some great characters who are really good value.”
“I’m usually found in the office, but if it gets busy on the apple line, I jump in and become and apple packer.”
A relatively new member of the team, the highlight for Leanne has been the compilation of the Woolworths certification manuals. A modest lass, her colleagues are quick to explain her acheivement.
“It took Leanne five months of typing to put it all together and it was approved on the first go! The auditors actually mentioned in their paperwork that they were impressed with Leanne’s work.”
Leanne added, “You pick up the wad of paper and think, oh wow, I wrote that!”
