This might be the NPD job you imagined when you started in Food Manufacturing. You know, back when you thought you could have carte blanche to come up with new ideas and then see them on the shelves in supermarkets.
Then reality set in – most “NPD” is developing products with narrow variation from briefs created by the top brass at retailers. Get it too far off, and the other manufacturer would get the contract.
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to come up with your own ideas and pitch them, while still having a good brand and lots of own-label business to support the company's revenues? You would still get to use your team-management experience and you would still maintain your retail relationships, but you would also have the freedom to develop new products and change the composition of this premium food category. Sounds good? Then click apply straight away and I will come back to you with more info.
