We’ve been recruiting for food industry clients since 2009, carving out a reputation for delivering insightful, attentive customer service. Rather than taking a ‘post and hope’ approach, we always do our homework. After all, it’s only by understanding your business, your brand and your brief that we can represent you properly and attract the kind of candidates you need.

Food focused

One difference you will notice, is the depth of our expertise. We only recruit for the food industry and our consultants have a genuine passion for food and drink. They know their kefir from their kombucha; they can tell the difference between a Specifications Technologist and a Development Chef.

From our South London offices, we tackle assignments across the whole of the UK from small Highland distilleries to award-winning Cornish Pasty manufacturers.

We’ve worked on roles including product developers, QA experts, process technologists, plant managers, technical specialists, operations directors, development chefs, planners, supply chain managers, marketers and graduate positions. If you have a food-related role to fill (up to c. £70k), we’d love to work with you.
