Ambrosia (Premier Foods)

Manufacture of Ambrosia Rice Pudding and Custard

What we do:

Famously 100 years old this year we make pots and tins of custard and rice pudding, using local resources wherever possible, especially Devon cream and milk. We are a continuously running business with operators working day and night shifts.

Why we became a healthy workplace:

In order to promote health in the workplace and improve health year on year through one to one encounters and group education.

Recent health and well being activities:

Know Your Numbers event in September.
This is a drop in event run over 2 days to help people identify their blood pressure/weight/and units of alcohol consumed in order to promote improvements in lifestyle. Stop Smoking advice given where needed.
Summer Cycle challenge, Raft race and a day of varied walks. These were all very successful.

 

Success Story:

I have been delighted to see a number of people stop smoking this year, and also an individual who decided to lose weight to help with a musculoskeletal problem.

 

Unhealthy Choices

Unhealthy lifestyle choices cost the NHS, employers and indivduals £17.1billion every year, according to research from health insure and provider Bupa. 

Success Story

My name is Tony King and I'm part of the Maintenance Team at YMCA Cornwall.  When I first started working here, I spotted the Cycle to Work Scheme on a poster so I thought I would enquire about it.

It's very easy to set up; you can get up to £1000 which covers the cost of the bike, a lock, helmet and lights.  All you had to do was go to the bike shop and choose your bike.

Since getting my bike, I've now been cycling for the past 18 months from Hayle (to Penzance) which is 11 miles.  I feel fitter, I've lost weight and it has got me into cycling having been cycling in France and Belgium.  Next year I'm going cycling in Holland.

All in all, it's a good scheme and I would highly recommend it.
