The Fresh Produce Centre

The Challenge

Fresca is the largest privately-owned supplier of fruit and vegetables in the UK. The business is comprised of multiple sites across the UK spanning from Herefordshire to Lincolnshire, to their HQ in Kent. We were approached with two very specific and niche roles; the Group Compliance Director is a leading figure in Human Rights within Food/Fresh Produce and so wanted to look at developing his team within this area. There is a big focus on sustainability across the group, so a hands-on practical Sustainability Manager and Human Rights Graduate was required to improve sites within the company.

The Approach

With roles being very specific in an area of the industry that is not particularly developed, not only did we utilise our long-standing network, but we proactively searched for individuals with specific skill sets. We wanted to ensure we understood what the potential candidates had done previously and what was going to be of interest to ensure the role within the Agri Food Supply Chain was right for them to allow us to then go forward with a successful placement.

Benefits

MorePeople’s understanding of the industry allows us to effectively recruit for very specialist roles, quickly and efficiently. Our long-lasting relationships with clients mean we have a good understanding of their business needs and culture fit.

“I have had a working relationship with MorePeople for the past 20 years and have always found them to be professional, efficient, and effective. In the last year specifically, I required a couple of appointments that necessitated a unique set of specification criteria. MorePeople was exceptional and filled both vacancies with successful candidates within a month of instruction. Impressive!”
