If you’re ready to pick up the pace on your Technical career, this could be the perfect partnership.
This chilled food manufacturer is on a big growth curve. Increased consumer demand and a strong NPD pipeline are the reasons behind this. Innovation is fuelling the fire. No longer niche, vegan food is HUGE. Last year the UK launched more vegan products than any other nation (source: Marketing Week). But new vegan ranges are only part of this story…
Long-term partnership commitments from major retailers has led to increased confidence with solid growth plans already underway.

Degree qualified in Food Science or a related discipline, you’ll need a good understanding around microbiological standards and allergen control. This is a multi-component chilled food site with a high number of SKUs so a background at a similar fast-paced site, managing a sizable team is needed.
It is also important to note you must have no special dietary requirements, as tasting of the products is a requirement of the role. Salary is dependent on experience, there may be some more in the pot for an outstanding candidate.
So if you have a strong Technical or Quality background in chilled food manufacturing and are ready to change up a gear, send me your CV and I’ll be in touch to tell you more.
