Marketing

 

We work with the UK’s largest food retailers to identify market trends and consumer needs. We then share this market and consumer insight with our Commercial and Development teams. By researching and analysing data in this way, we gain an understanding of why shoppers purchase the products they do, which in turn influences our innovative product ranges. It’s exciting. It’s future focused. And you can join us in our Insight, Customer or Futures team (or a combination of all three).

Development

 

Creativity and a passion for food are a must in Development. Taking chef-inspired ideas, we transform them into commercially viable products that will fly off supermarket shelves. We support and assist other development teams across the Group when needed too. We look for efficiency, consistency, and an eye for detail, as you’ll be conducting market research and developing new products to meet customer-specific needs.
