"I have worked for a couple of other companies but this is a very good company to work for.
"They are very flexible and I can approach operations director Russell Jenkins any time to have a chat, he's not like many other directors that don't have time for you."
Mr Borrelli said his position held a great degree of job satisfaction and added: "We make Chelsea buns from flour and yeast, and its about achieving something."
Jenkins company director and secretary David Jenkins said: "We pride ourselves on recognising our staff with an annual long service awards lunch.
"We are a family business with a great tradition and we take great pleasure in the fact that we have a great relationship with our staff members.
"Their loyal service is one of the pillars on which our business is built."
Jenkins celebrated its 90th anniversary last year and now has the Gold Standard Welsh Food Hygiene Award and the Investors in People award.
