You'll highlight to the business any forthcoming availability and quality issues, working closely with the factory operations and technical teams. Suitable candidates will have an agricultural, quality or food production background and have experience within fresh produce or chilled food.

To succeed in this role, you'll need to be confident and resilient, able to work collaboratively with suppliers and cross-functionally. A pragmatic and highly organised individual you will be focused on quality whilst able to work at pace. This role will involve some travel to suppliers in the UK and Europe and you will need a full driving licence.

If you have the required experience and would like to join a progressive food business that offers great career development opportunities, apply today.
