  • Monitoring the quality of produce in customer stores and reporting back findings to the key teams in the business.
  • Assure customer specifications are being met by liaising with the quality, compliance and systems team and ensuring any deviations are flagged promptly.
  • Taking responsibility for the health and safety of yourself and others whilst at work.
  • Supporting company initiatives and demonstrate company values.

To be considered for this role you will ideally have experience operating within the fresh produce arena, ideally with a BSc. in Food Science / Technology / Agronomy or any related disciplines. However experience in meat, dairy or chilled prepared foods would be considered.
