Introduction

Manufacturing healthy and sustainable food, balancing indulgence and efficiency is a great challenge. Product life cycles are getting shorter and trends in chocolate, confectionary, bakery and plant based food solutions are evolving faster than ever. Within Bunge Loders Croklaan (BLC) we dedicate our expertise to understand and identify our customers’ needs and collaborate to help them to choose the right fat solution for their specific food products.

Even though leading a team is one of the responsibilities, this function has major hands-on aspects to it. Besides passionately nurturing an international network at senior management level, through direct contact, trade shows, technical consortia and associations, this role also provides front line technical support and translates up-coming market trends towards our innovation pipeline. For example, making effective and creative product/ingredient recommendations, giving impactful presentations on technical topics, addressing processing challenges, as well as identifying market needs across customer interests and connecting this to capabilities, existing and new.

Being a manager, you’ll build talent and succession plans and differentiate according to channels, customer classification, and service levels, closely connecting with peers across regions to learn and share best practice and talent development.

This role is aligned to our office in Zaandam and can be partially performed hybrid/remotely. Expected travel is around 30-40% to customers, exhibitions/events and the team.

  • Proficiency in English is required, other European languages are needed, you consider yourself a polyglot.
  • At least 5 years people and innovation management at senior level, and 15 years overall experience in the food (ingredients) industry, B2B and B2C are expected, preferably in Confectionary.
  • A track record of successful value creation through innovation, hands-on experience in development and implementation.
  • Strong customer orientation and business acumen, value merchant.

Our new colleague is a true authority in food innovation. Coming from an international FMCG environment enables translating customer interests and needs into insights, developments, and solutions that surpass the obvious. We are looking for an experienced and servant leader and motivational team and project / program manager. As this role also influences relationships with our Key Accounts, both technical as well as commercial skills are important. You are the person who connects the dots! Your team of A&TS professionals are true professional. What you bring is additional inspiration and solution orientation with a marketeer mentality. Keeping in mind the dynamic of what consumers want, you can advise our customers from both business and technical perspective.

What we offer
A key role in an organization with colleagues around the region, who are dedicated to improving the global Agri-Food value chain, one day at a time. Being a global company that is constantly innovating, a broad variety development opportunities can support your long term career at Bunge.
