Bulk Nutrients Celebrates Harmony Week

Bulk Nutrients Celebrates Harmony Week

Our cultural diversity is reflected in the fact that just over 30% of our workforce has a non-Anglo heritage.

Harmony Week at Bulk Nutrients

As we celebrate Harmony Week and Harmony Day, we also want to highlight that the traditional colours of this celebration are orange which signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. It also relates to the freedom of ideas and the encouragement of mutual respect.

Interestingly, this is also the primary colour of the Bulk Nutrients brand. So, we proudly wear our Bulk orange each and every day as a symbol of our commitment to promoting diversity, inclusiveness, and respect for one another.

As we continue to grow as a company, we remain dedicated to creating a culture that values and celebrates the diverse backgrounds and experiences of our team members so that they too can grow and move onto new roles!

A Multicultural Workforce makes us all better

At Bulk Nutrients, we believe a multicultural workforce is essential for creating a workplace culture that values and respects different backgrounds and experiences. Our cultural diversity is reflected in the fact that just over 30% of our workforce has a non-Anglo heritage. Such a diverse workforce is nothing new to us, we have over 10 nationalities represented among our staff, having supported migrant workers for many years.

We're particularly proud of Mbaz from the Republic of Congo who's just achieved 10 years of service and was the first migrant staff member to be employed at Bulk Nutrients.

We have staff with a deep connection to the land through their aboriginal heritage, and our facility is located on the lands of the Melukerdee People of the South East Nation.

Having a diverse workforce makes us all more well-rounded, accepting and understanding.

As a company, we are committed to adding value to the broad and varied community through support and partnerships, both locally and Australia-wide and we had the great pleasure of supporting 100 diverse NFP and charities through our Bulk Gives Back program in 2022.

Let us introduce you to some of our diverse and talented team at Bulk Nutrients...

Harmony Week

Quality Assured - Meet Raman

Our Quality Assurance superstar has just started her second year with us! Originally from Punjab, India, Raman studied and received her Masters of Food Science and Technology in Melbourne before moving to Hobart.

She plays an essential role in ensuring all our products meet our high-quality standards before they are released to our customers.

Harmony Week - Quality Assurance superstar Raman

Growing up in a regional area of India, Raman feels a familiar connection to Tasmania because of the similar wide-open spaces, farms and country towns. In her free time, Raman enjoys cooking and experimenting with new recipes.

Raman is passionate about her job and finds Bulk Nutrients to be a great company to work for. She loves the supportive Production and Management team, the company's strong values, and the friendly team culture.

Rest assured that when Raman is on the job, she is committed to ensuring our customers receive only the best quality products.

Keyboard King, Khoi from the Web Team

Originally from Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, Khoi has been a Frontend Developer at Bulk Nutrients since April 2022, and he's been a most valuable member of the team ever since.

With a passion for coding and problem-solving, Khoi is always eager to tackle new challenges.

Khoi was drawn to Bulk Nutrients because of the company's focus on diversity and flexibility. He went through a rigorous interview process, which allowed him to showcase his technical abilities, and he was thrilled to be offered the position. Since joining the team, Khoi has been an integral part of developing and maintaining the company's website, ensuring it runs smoothly and looks great.

Family is a cornerstone of Vietnamese culture, and Khoi values his close-knit family in Vietnam very much. While he misses them, he enjoys video calling with them regularly and showing them his new home in Tasmania.

Khoi loves the peaceful environment in Tasmania, and (despite admitting that he has no sense of direction) he's been enjoying exploring the state with his partner when he's not at the keyboard.

Khoi lived and studied in Melbourne for a year, which prepared him for the differences he would encounter in Australia. However, Hobart was entirely new to him. At first, it was strange to see less crowded streets, no skyscrapers, and little traffic.

It was also harder to find the Asian food that he was accustomed to, but Khoi eventually realized that Tasmania's peaceful environment was healthier, and he enjoys it very much now.

In February 2023, Khoi returned to Vietnam for the first time since he moved to Australia in 2018, partly thanks to COVID-19. He's looking forward to spending time with his family and experiencing some of the delicious Vietnamese cuisine that he's been missing.

The numbers guy, Jeevan from Accounts

Originally from Colombo, Sri Lanka, Jeevan “JD” started his journey at Bulk Nutrients in our Production team (even though he was a qualified accountant in Sri Lanka, before transitioning to accounts).

Many migrants are highly qualified but find it difficult to secure employment in their field in Australia, and we think it’s great when we can support staff into positions that use their qualifications and talents as the business grows.

JD found that compared to Sri Lanka, Australia was very a multicultural place. While he still appreciates the friendliness of people in Sri Lanka (something of a unique aspect of his culture) the diversity friendly nature of everyday Australian’s helped him feel more comfortable when he first came to Australia due to our friendly attitude!

Learning about the supply chain process from A to Z is his favourite thing about working at Bulk Nutrients, as every job becomes part of the learning process.

With his extensive knowledge of our products and processes, JD brings a unique perspective to his role, ensuring that our accounts are always accurate.

Outside work, JD likes to spend time with his family and visit the natural wonders of Australia.
