Both roles represent significant growth opportunities for the business and whilst varied customer portfolios the business is ideally positioned to service them with both their brands but strength in delivering award winning private label products.  This is truly a unique opportunity to gain some awesome experience and large P&L exposure, which very few get at this stage within their careers!
