Food Technical Manager
Supply Chain Operations
At innocent we’re going through an exciting period of growth – broadening both our products portfolio and the geographies we operate within, getting our delicious drinks in the hands of more and more drinkers across Europe.
To help us achieve this we’re looking for a technical manager (or operations technologist as we call it here) to help us maintain the safety, quality and legality of our drinks.
We’ve come a long way from selling smoothies in West London in 1999. Today, innocent’s healthy little drinks are flying off the shelves across Western Europe, we’re achieving meaty double-digit growth, and selling over £250m each year of smoothies, juices and coconut water.
We’re going through an exciting period of growth and we need more hands on deck to help us achieve this.
What you’ll be doing:
You’ll be driving the technical performance improvement programme throughout innocent’s 3rd party partners, including across our Coconut Water supply stakeholders. You’ll also play a pivotal role protecting innocent’s business by maintaining and improving a robust due diligence programme and risk management of the coconut water supply.
We are currently working closely with our partners to design and deliver a sustainable global supply chain, initially in Thailand but also in other regions across Asia. You will work closely with the Fruit, Regulatory & Sustainability teams as we identify and establish the best partners and procedures to enable our supply chain for growth.
To understand the supply chain fully and to establish a strong working relationship with partners, you will spend chunks of time in Thailand with the Thai team and also our suppliers.
