You’ll also be conducting benchmarking, taste panels and competitor analysis as well as monitoring product performance to drive continuous improvements and ensure this established business maintains its leading position within its sector. In addition you’ll be presenting new ideas to key customers, impressing them with your product and industry knowledge and maintaining strong relationships to help both sides achieve their ambitious goals.
