About the Company

This is an exciting opportunity to join a global food company that is fast paced and dynamic, where you will become part of a specialised team that are experts in growing brands. As part of this team, you will be recognised as innovative thinkers who understand the changing needs of consumers.

About the Role

The main focus of the role is to manage the end-to-end process of NPD by launching new products into the Australian market.

Plus, you can add commercial value with your technical expertise, sensory skills, and strong market insights.
