Exciting new NAM position within one of the UK’s fastest growing Foodservice Food trends

We are a Globally renowned brand leader in Japanese Food products.
Within the UK we operate with a £50 Million plus turnover servicing clients across the Foodservice sector.
This includes the traditional Japanese and Chinese Food sectors but also significantly includes continued growth into the mainstream Foodservice channel.
Although we manufacturer for the retail sector, the FMCG part of our business is outsourced resulting in our team being 100% dedicated to the Foodservice sector.
With Japanese cuisine being on-trend we have ambitious plans to introduce our market leading products into further new customers across all sectors.
We have a fantastic European based NPD team which allow us to not only introduce our existing range but also to develop bespoke and innovative products for our customers.
We are seeking to add a Foodservice NAM to our team to support with the success within this area over the last 2 years and manage accounts within this area, but also to further develop new relationships within this area.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to inherit an existing account base with some realistic growth plans in this area in place for 2018.

This will involves discussing all areas of pricing, listings and service level agreements.
In addition to this you will inherit circa 10 existing and currently high performing end user accounts from within the Foodservice sector. These are well known brand names from across QSR, Restaurant Groups and Pub Groups.
We are also seeking to make further inroads into Contract Catering and University end users over the next 2 years so you will be fully responsible for planning and implementation of business development at National Accounts level in this area.
The long term plan is to grow business significantly over the next two years, and start to recruit for further personnel to support objectives and further growth within the UK Foodservice sector.

The successful candidate will be a passionate Foody with an interest in oriental food products.
