Our client is a forward thinking food group that has maximised opportunities for growth within the market by a programme of renewal and continuous improvement. This division is led by a passionate, commercial and strategically orientated senior management team.

Already enjoying significant stature and credibility with your retail customers and an unusually impressive knowledge of the major food multiple retailers with which you have worked, you will have an enviable reputation within your sector.
