At NKG, we strongly believe that the knowledge, passion, and commitment of every employee is the core of our success: coffee is a people’s business!

To learn with and from each other and to create opportunities for professional and personal development is significant for us. At the same time, we motivate new colleagues to bring fresh impetus to our everyday work. For us, team spirit and continuous development are at the heart of successful long-term collaboration. Whether you are a student, graduate, or experienced professional – we offer a wide range of career opportunities.

For the love of (green) coffee

Lived values

Our Corporate Culture

Our guiding principle is the “honorable merchant”. This stands for responsible behavior and values such as honesty, reliability, and integrity as the basis for business activities. We have translated these values into today’s world and laid them down (in our Code of Conduct, for example). We think long-term and attach great importance to responsible relationships with our colleagues and business partners. The appreciation of each individual and teamwork are at the heart of our corporate culture. We promote a working environment characterized by creativity, trust, open communication, and respectful cooperation. That is why we are happy to invest in the training and development of our employees, because their competence and commitment are crucial to the success of the company.

Our unity is based on diversity

Coffee is an international business

We employ over 3,000 highly skilled permanent staff and numerous seasonal laborers, many of whom return year after year. The rich variety of nationalities and cultures makes us unique and allows us to expand our perspectives. As a group, we operate globally and therefore benefit from a variety of entrepreneurial, regional, and cultural perspectives on the coffee supply chain. In doing so, we complement, support, help, and enrich each other. The resulting close intercultural exchange simultaneously promotes the diversity and unity of our group. Thus, we support our employees in their desire to spend time abroad and learn about the cultural roots of coffee in other parts of the world.
