Alongside the branded products, there is also a range of unbranded products which are aimed at non retail markets and the poultry market.

The role is flexible in terms of days/hours worked and will include some “office” days in order to carry out research etc which can be done remotely so location is flexible.

  • Reporting visits and feeding back information. Liaising with the Management team.

  • Reporting on competitor activities.

  • Explore and grow sales opportunities for the unbranded side of the business.
