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.

The recession has had a 'significant impact' on the mental well-being of the UK's workforce, according to new research  punlished by Mind.  One in 10 people visited their GP for mental health support last year as a result of recession-induced stress.
