Fresh Produce Trader | Kent | Non-retail
We are currently looking for a Fresh Produce Trader to work with a very progressive non-retail trading business. They are looking for a wholesale trader ideally with good fruit or vegetable experience, who can help this business continue their growth.
You will be working closely with the Senior team to ensure the business is maximising their opportunities with non-retail customers (wholesalers and foodservice in the main, but they do deal with some packers as well) around the country.
Ideally you will be building on your existing relationships and the business will support you in finding new customers and suppliers.
Where possible, you will be buying fruit (potentially veg and salad) direct from the growers, so that the supply chain is as short as possible and allows you to maximise margins.
You will have a background in buying and selling fresh produce, but experience of dealing with the wholesale markets and non-retail channels will be essential.
You will be a team player as the business works well with a very close-knit team of people who are all pulling in the same direction.
Effective computer skills are an absolute must and the ability to communicate effectively is clearly vital.
If you are interested in this opportunity or similar roles, please get in touch with Morten Andresen on 01780 480530 or apply via this link.
