  • Are you looking for a challenging role?
  • Do you have enthusiasm and excitement for new flavors?
  • Have you got experience with major retailers and chilled/ambient products?

  • You will need to travel to the Far East at least a couple of times a year.
  • EPD projects play a big part in the role, your experience of flavors and costs will be challenged.

What are we looking for?

  • Ideally a degree in a Food related subject but this is not essential.
  • Worked previously with the major UK supermarkets in a customer facing role.
  • The ability to work in a team environment, bringing departments together and project manage activities through the business on time and within budget.
  • You will need to have great tenacity as working in chilled food, and supplying the major retailers can be incredibly rewarding, and incredibly tough, in equal measures.
  • Exceptional communication skills is vital, both internally and externally.
  • Exceptional organisation skills
  • Self-starter, calm driven and adaptable

In return for meeting the above criteria the successful candidate will receive an excellent package which includes a salary between £35,000-£38,000.  This opportunity also offers the opportunity to join a business that is currently growing and successfully winning major retailers.
