Our innovative NPD has led to the development of a foodservice range that keeps up to date with market trends concerning the latest seafood products and enables our comprehensive range to be suitable for end users across the foodservice sector including pubs, QSR and in particular education.

We adopt a strong ethos in regards to sustainable products and also constantly evolve their product range to meet the requirements for school menus.

The client base will be predominantly focused around restaurant chain, casual dining, QSR and Pub chain customers – although the diversity and flexibility of our product range means that you may also be involved in other sectors.

You will also manage and develop business within the Food Manufacturing sector – particularly with sandwich and pizza manufacturers.

The role is predominantly home based so suits a candidate who enjoys and is effective in working remotely.
