Our client is part of a major international food group, they are the leader in several of their product groups in both the retail and food service market. They have been consistently successful, developing organically, and their products are consumed at home by millions.
They have had a new idea which they have been developing over the last year with trial production runs and some test marketing at retail. The results have been encouraging and they believe there is a business to be developed. It is completely new and is a really clever concept.
We are looking for someone who can pick up this idea and really run with it. It will require a complete business plan pulling together. It will need to further develop the product range, it will require a brand name and a brand plan and then it will need to be presented and sold to the retailers who will ultimately list it.
So it is a really fascinating and demanding role suitable for someone who has sales and marketing skills someone who can launch a new product range, be involved with forecasting, and be numerically savvy enough to create a robust business plan which can then be delivered.
