There’s lots to get your teeth into here. Developing innovative products in a thriving food business for a range of industry leading customers.
Here you will be managing a small, junior team, heading up the NPD function for this thriving food business. They have an impressive array of customers, supplying them with innovative food products across several categories. You’ll have the opportunity to work on a diverse range of NPD and EPD projects and see your products supplied right across the industry with key brands, retailers and restaurants.
It’s a varied role, working to customer briefs to deliver innovative new concepts. You’ll be liaising with customers, presenting ideas, taking products through factory trials and keeping abreast of the latest industry trends. We are looking for someone with a strong culinary background, able to be hands-on developing recipes and presenting these to customers. You’ll also need proven experience in critical path management, taking projects through all key milestones to successful launch.
This well-established food business has enjoyed a successful past 12 months and has further exciting growth plans ahead. The NPD team has grown to keep up with demand and it’s expected to expand further in the coming year. A key growth area has been in plant-based development so an interest in this category would be beneficial. As you’ll be leading a fairly junior team, we’re looking for someone who enjoys developing others. You’ll be responsible for managing key project deadlines and the teams’ workloads so great organisational and time management skills will be key.
There’s lots of scope to grow with the business and you’ll have a high profile, managing key customer relationships with major players in the industry. The team has strong food credentials, no doubt a reason why the company enjoys such a strong customer base.
