International Weyermann® employee introduces her country of origin, the Ukraine

A beautiful thing the Ukraine and Weyermann® Malt have in common is the color yellow. It symbolizes sun-ripened grain on both sides.

This and many other interesting facts were presented from Antonina Yurkevych, who gladly introduced her country of origin to a large group of Weyermann® employees with a lecture during lunchtime.

Antonina is completing her apprenticeship as an industrial clerk at Weyermann® Malts and is in her second year of training.

Antonina began her lecture with some general facts about the country, such as the geographic location, language, form of government and currency.
After presenting famous personalities of the country and giving an insight into the leisure activities, she explained how certain holidays were celebrated in comparison to Germany. Christmas e.g. is celebrated according to the Julian calendar. Thus Christmas Eve is celebrated on January 6th; Christmas Day on January 7th.

Finally, Antonina presented typical dishes of the Ukrainian cuisine and made the mouths of the Weyermann® employees water. Lucky for them, Antonina had prepared a selection of Ukrainian treats for them to taste, after showing a short corporate video demonstrating the beauty of the country.

Thank you for the wonderful insight into your country of origin and the delicacies, Antonina!

By the way: in total there are 250 breweries in the Ukraine. Weyermann® proudly counts over 150 of them to its customers.
