Posted by: Jeff Greenberg | Posted on: June 21, 2021

This multifaceted role in our food production and packaging operations works with our food manufacturers to transform ingredients and packaging into delicious products.  Food Manufacturing Associates work with different food products on different days.   We need some awesome workers to come help us grow our food manufacturing company as we take on some new and exciting product lines. Do you have food production experience? Are you responsible, fast and fun?

Our FMA’s are on the frontline making baked goods, snacks and nut butters. With a varied client base and new companies joining often, our FMA’s work on a variety of products. It isn’t the same work day in, day out, so FMA’s have to have a willingness to learn and adapt. Our FMA’s are trained and then trusted to operate scales, mixers, kettles, ovens, fillers, sealers, and packaging equipment.

FMA’s are eligible for paid time off, healthcare reimbursement, and bonuses after a 60 day probationary period. As FMA’s master additional equipment they can earn additional income by becoming Technicians or Manufacturing Leads. We are currently hiring for positions available for days (6am – 4:30pm). Please indicate your availability in your application.
