My client is a progressive food group with an entrepreneurial flair for growing and developing added value food brands and building a profitable business, with a key focus on the leading Grocery Retail Multiple trade channel.

As part of their continued strategic drive for future growth, they now wish to appoint a highly talented and experienced, commercially minded Marketing Controller. This role will initially take full responsibility for a rapidly growing added value brand, which has a strong alignment to current consumer trends, with the potential for significant future growth, both in the UK and International markets.
