Clarisha Zukhrufa with R&D

Management Trainee Experience: Clarisha Zukhrufa

Hello! My name is Clarisha, but most people call me Yova. I graduated from Swiss German University, and majored in Food Technology. It’s such a great opportunity to be here in Kraft Heinz, moreover being one of the Management Trainees in Indonesia.

I was thrilled when I was announced that I will be placed in Research and Development for the first rotation.  They say time flies when you are having fun, and this applies to me as it had already been 2.5 months since I’ve been in R&D, and my experience here has been unbelievable. There were so many things I’ve done which I never thought I’d be capable of doing.

Here in R&D I was trusted with handling many projects, including from three different divisions in this department which are Product, Regulatory Affairs (RA), and Process. In Kraft Heinz, people came up to me and said that I could learn so many things in this company. This is true, as I have not stopped absorbing new knowledge in every second of my time here, and it’s been a great privilege to be in R&D and be involved in almost every division.

In product, it really does feel like I’m cooking in the kitchen where I try to adjust the recipe to be perfect. In RA, I am in charge of facility audit for a new product. This made me have a broader exposure as people from many divisions and cross departments are involved for the audit to run. As for Process division, I’ve been taught on how Chili Sauce is made in the factory, and I’m also helping out to set up a new line for a new product.

Being here, I’ve had wide exposures with cross departments and even from other facilities, such as the Karawang Plant, and I was also able to meet and discuss with suppliers. Aside from that, being an MT gave me the privilege to discuss with the Board of Directors as they are very open for discussions.  I cannot wait to know what the future holds for me in Kraft Heinz, but I will just sit back and relax here and enjoy every second of my journey as a Management Trainee.
