Our People


Back in 2001, an ambitious group of individuals bought a factory in Hull on a mission to deliver a range of natural snacks with a difference.

Now operating as part of Zertus, we have sites in Hull, Heckington and a testing lab in Cambridge. We are enjoying continued growth and are proud to be a unique business with an expanding portfolio of products and a reputation for quality and product innovation.

Humdinger means ‘a remarkable or outstanding thing of its kind’ and our people are the embodiment of this definition. We understand that our staff are the foundation of the business and we strive to provide the right tools and support, to ensure that everyone at Humdinger is able to thrive and develop professionally.

Our six values resonate through all we do and bring us closer together with great behaviours, great actions and great ways of working. We celebrate individuality. We celebrate diversity.

Our People

Hear from the inspirational people that work at Humdinger.



I started my career at Humdinger back in 2005 as a Production Operative. Over the years I have been given the opportunity to develop my skills and I am now an established Line Leader with a deep understanding of the company. I enjoy the variety of my work at Humdinger and like that I am always kept busy. I always make myself available to support my co-workers, who often come to me for support and advice.



I also began my journey at Humdinger as a Production Operative back in 2006. Within a year I had developed my skills and progressed to a Line Leader.

In 2011, I was promoted again to Production Planner within our Supply Chain team. I thoroughly enjoy working at Humdinger; each day brings interesting new challenges, my team are very supportive and the company is going in a fantastic direction.



My Humdinger career started 14 years ago and I have made several fantastic friendships over the years. I enjoy the regular training and development which is made available and have received several promotions since starting as a Production Operative, including Line Leader and Shift Team Leader. I am now a knowledgeable and experienced Production Supervisor with my own team to support. Our new Leadership Development Programme is helping me gain new skills and I am looking forward to soon providing my own training sessions to my team.



I joined the Humdinger team when the company had just begun back in 2002 as a Purchase Ledger Clerk and haven’t looked back since. Over the years I have received several promotions and I am now the Inventory Manager. I have always valued the family feel to Humdinger and love how every day is different.
