2021 apprentice excursion: the fast and the flavorful
Every year Sensiron holds an apprentice excursion, and this year was no exception. This year’s excursion was more fast-paced and flavorful than ever before!
Tour of the Zweifel chip factory
The apprentices and the Apprentice Manager set off to Zweifel’s chip factory first thing in the morning. When we arrived, we were welcomed by two friendly employees. We were then split into two groups and began the tour. We toured the production area and learned a lot of interesting information, like the fact that bad chips are made into animal feed. After the tour, we went up to the floor above, where a wide selection of chips was waiting to be tasted. Apprentices were also able to play games, take pictures or watch Zweifel’s advertisements. As we were leaving, everyone received a large bag of Zweifel products as a parting gift. It was definitely a very delicious morning!
After lunch at an Italian restaurant, we headed to Winterthur to enjoy some go-karting. Once we arrived, the people in charge explained the rules to us and told us how to drive. We split into groups again – three this time – because there wasn’t enough room on the track for 21 apprentices in 21 different go-karts all at the same time. Some apprentices drove very fast, while others decided to take things more slowly. Those who weren’t driving were able to watch the other apprentices or talk among themselves for a while. The eight fastest drivers qualified for the final and put on an exciting race. With a few milliseconds to spare, Julian came in first place and won the tournament.
It was a great day! The apprentice excursion helped to strengthen our relationships and improve our teamwork skills.
