As awareness of allergens and health trends increase, so does the importance of accurate food labelling.
This is a newly created and varied Food Technologist position to expand and strengthen the team, bridging the gap between the NPD and Technical functions.
You will work on products from concept stage, calculate nutritional data and create pack copy. You'll liaise with Marketing colleagues to provide advice on product health claims and develop front of pack design. Working with external designers, printers and translators as appropriate you'll ensure all packaging and labelling meets legal / regulatory requirements.
With a number of exciting product launches in the pipeline and a brand refresh next year, this is a great time to join. This is a well-established, highly regarded and progressive food business that invests in the latest technologies and staff training. You'll be supported by a variety of external resources and expert advice to ensure you can perform your role effectively.
To succeed you'll need to bring knowledge of food law and labelling requirements along with real attention to detail.
A Food & Nutrition degree, or at least, real interest in nutrition would be advantageous. Knowledge of NPD processes, allergens, HARA, HACCP and BRC are all desirable.
Interest in packaging, global food trends and sustainability would all be a bonus too.
As this is a new position, you have an opportunity to build on your existing experience and develop new skills as you grow into and shape the role. There are excellent progression opportunities across the group and numerous examples of staff enjoying successful long-term careers here.
