Newly created opportunity for you to drive the technology-led food innovation strategy; working for a thriving food business.

There’s plenty to get your teeth into here. You’ll get to shape a brand new role, using your Food Science expertise to unlock new product opportunities.

You will be involved in new product formulations, utilising new ingredients, and innovative processing techniques to develop a healthy innovation pipeline. You’ll also get involved in reformulating existing recipes, improving manufacturing processes, and solving quality issues.

The role involves working on new concepts from ideation stage through to product launch, working closely with the NPD and Process teams. You’ll be horizon scanning to identify new ingredients, techniques, and processes that will provide a competitive edge. This will include working with suppliers and research partners and translating scientific findings into commercially successful new concepts.

It's a great time to join as this already successful business looks to build on and broaden its product portfolio. You’ll be an integral part of the growth strategy, developing opportunities in new categories, and evolving the existing range to keep ahead of the competition.
