Job Description

REQUIREMENTS: BS/BA in food science, food technology or nutrition required. 3+ years of innovative bench top product and program development experience and capabilities. Ability to meet aggressive deadlines. Nutritional or nutritional products background a plus. Knowledge of FDA/FTC regulations. Solid, hands on, product development experience working with nutritionally based supplements and/or functional foods is ideal. May consider other food applications or pharms. There are a lot of flavor companies in the area. Those working only with flavors are usually not of interest. They want a candidate with end products product development experience since that is their business. They do not do much flavor work.

There is no relocation program. So, local candidates only or people who are willing to relocate themselves. They are independently owned and have been in business for 30+ years. They have been experiencing enormous growth the last 2 to 3 years in which they have gone from 85 to 125+ employees and taken production from 2 to 3 shifts. Current customers are hospitals, doctors and clinics who specialize in weight loss and nutritional medicine. They also sell OTC product to nutritional stores, retail stores, fitness centers, etc. and they have a mail order service. They are working on expanding to other markets. Their procuts are based on "real science" and they have a very good relationship with the FDA, USDA, etc. This, along with their fairly small size, allows them to get products FDA approved and out to the market quickly. They are a “flat” organization so not a lot of upward mobility title-wise but as their product lines grow all of their employees will grow with them. They cross train all of their R&D people on all of their products so everyone is involved with projects and they keep their people "fresh and challenged". Currently have 10 people in their R&D group.

DUTIES: Apply scientific principles in research, development, production, technology, quality control, packaging and processing of nutritionally designed foods/beverages and dietary supplements. Conduct basic nutrition research for the development of programs to support product utilization. Conduct bench top product development, taking products from original concept to manufacturing and commercialization. Researches and develops nutrition and product parameters for unique applications and new markets. Evaluate raw materials and finished product provided by contract manufacturers for product quality and process feasibility. Provide evaluation and recommendation for product improvements by addressing flavor, texture, nutritional value, convenience, composition and cost. Recommend specific ingredient processes and packaging materials. Provide technical support to current customer base.
