At Colruyt Group, they will develop a business case on the theme of circular economy under guidance of experts and coaches. They will also be introduced to all the links in the logistics chain.

At home with Colruyt Group colleagues

The students have a busy schedule mapped out for them. Luckily, 4 host families are ready to welcome them after a busy day. These host families are all Colruyt Group colleagues who volunteered to take in one of the students into their homes. This way the Indonesian students have a fully immersive experience of the Belgian culture.
