- January 11, 2017 at 3:10 pm #165442
We’re a Condiment Manufacturer based in Yorkshire, with plans to move to London in the next few months.
We currently sell to independent retailers/customers all around the UK. We’re working on a project with the UK Trade and Investment which will see the range available overseas later this year.
Out next stage is to build the brand more and win contracts for larger retailers (supermarkets/overseas markets). This is where we need someone who will be able to help with this.
We’re looking for someone with passion/drive/knowledge of the industry. If this is you, please get in touch,
