As part of Nestlé UK’s ongoing relationship with Newcastle University and its commitment to the Youth Employment Initiative, Nestlé Fawdon, the home of Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles, Rolo and Toffee Crisp has supported another six student projects this year with great results.
The six masters students from Kazakhstan, Italy, Lebanon, Malaysia and the UK worked on environmental projects at the factory including ‘Thermal optimisation of anaerobic digestion’, ‘Effective food waste interventions’ and ‘Practical biodiversity assessment’.
All six students excelled, achieving distinctions for their respective post graduate degrees.
Congratulations to Aniyar Abulkassimov, Laura McCarthy and Samreet Sidhu, and a special call out for Will Restorick and Rawad Rizk who came top in their respective courses. Laura Polenghi received a special award for her work.
Andy Griffiths, Environmental Sustainability Manager, Nestlé UK & Ireland said: “Our relationship with the university goes back a few years, with the performance of successive students improving year on year. This is a great example of not only building environmental capability with potential environmental leaders of the future, but also generating practical proposals that can deliver significant business benefit.”
