The Hero Group is divided into five key functional areas – Sales, Marketing, Supply Chain, Finance & IT, and HR & Corporate Communications. Each department plays a pivotal role in our overall success.
From field sales to key accounts, to sales support and data analytics, our sales teams are responsible for maximizing physical availability of our products and nurturing our relationships with our trade customers. Largely a local function, our sales community meets a couple of times a year to share ideas, best practices and sharpen their skills. You could say that this is where the magic happens…
We love our stable of international and local brands. They have deep heritage and are bound by a common DNA, which is about getting the best natural and healthy food into the hands of our consumers. We believe that brand ownership should happen at the closest point to the consumer but within a well-defined global framework. Getting the balance right is not always easy, but given our size, all the marketing people know each other so collaboration and communication makes finding this balance that much easier.
In Europe, a Global Supply Chain organization aims to ensure synergies while leaving countries focus on what they do best. The aim is higher efficiency and harmonized portfolios and products while being agile enough to support local consumer needs. Supply Chain is composed of three key areas – Plan & Deliver, Procurement and Manufacturing (Plan / Source / Make / Deliver). Quite a serious bunch, but when it comes to producing high quality baby food, you have to be.
Finance & IT
Our Finance Department comprises Controlling and Tax & Treasury. This department also includes Legal & Compliance, and Global IT. Three competence centers make up Global IT, which is supported by local IT units. It all sounds bit dry, but to be honest they are just as focused on growing the company and delighting consumers as the commercial teams.
HR & Corporate Communications
How many times have you heard that ‘people are our strongest asset’. Well, we don’t. We believe that people are people and should feel free to come to work as themselves. We encourage difference and foster a culture built on our five core company values – Change, Empowerment, Speed, Entrepreneurship, and Family. Our HR team partner the business to attract, select, and develop the right people for our company. Despite our compelling mission and purpose as a company, we don’t expect our people to work for free, so yes – our HR teams ensure that we reward them!

We are proud of being a big, small family-owned company on a mission to provide our consumers with natural, tasty food. In fact, we think our smaller size is an advantage and appeals to people who thrive in an environment with short reporting lines, and where every individual can make an immediate impact on the company. Let’s grow together.
