Under the terms of the agreement, the students of Széchenyi University will have the opportunity to spend their internships at the company.

"As a university student myself, I spent my internships abroad, so I know how much experience this means for a young professional. This is one of the reasons why I am a great supporter of our joint programme," said Krysztof Rózycki, Production Director at Primavega. He stressed that the company's philosophy is to follow the journey of vegetables from the soil to the table, so every stage from production to processing and transport is taken care of. “Due to the huge demand for healthy products throughout Europe we want to further develop but it also requires a sufficient supply of specialists," he stated.d. He also mentioned that his company is committed to state-of-the-art technologies and is keen to share its knowledge with the professionals of the future. The internship will also give young people the opportunity to learn about the cultural and historical values of their country. 

Dr. Tamás Tóth concluded that the company and the university share their commitment to precision farming, which enhances sustainability, and he hopes that the partnership will have a positive impact in as many areas as possible for both parties. After the signing ceremony, the students were provided detailed information about the internship offered by the company, which is expected to give them the opportunity to gain experience in Poland this summer.
