Food Manufacturing Lead

Posted by: Jeff Greenberg | Posted on: August 6, 2018

This critical role in our food production and packaging operations leads our associates to transform ingredients and packaging into delicious products.  Food Manufacturing Leads are assigned primary responsibility for a product or set of products and are expected to stage materials, setup equipment, and prepare their team to execute consistently.

Our Leads supervise and work as part of teams of 3-9 to make breads, cookies, nut butters, snacks and treats. Our Leads are trained and then trusted to train other to operate scales, mixers, kettles, ovens, fillers, sealers, and packaging equipment. Because we work with so many different companies and products, you’re work will vary from week to week to keep things interesting and exciting. Leads report to a shift supervisor, who is there to assist with personnel and equipment.
