The answer is a resounding YES.

The company is performing extremely well, with frozen food sales at an all-time high and revenues in excess of €2bn per annum. Long term stability is therefore guaranteed.

The leadership team recognise and reward talent and dedication, making this a fantastic development opportunity with the potential for fast track career progression.

  • Capable of autonomous end to end strategic sourcing across multiple European countries
