The Company

Cranswick Country Foods is one of the UK's leading suppliers of quality fresh and processed pork. We produce premium products for retailers focusing on the top end of the market including Sainsburys ‘Taste the Difference ‘range and the Tesco ‘Finest’ ranges.

Who are Cranswick Country Foods? 

Through a mixture of acquisitions and new products, Cranswick has enjoyed significant growth over the last seven years and have experienced continued success winning several industry awards this year including ‘Best Pork Product’.  Most recently, we have teamed up with Jamie Oliver to launch a new range of food products available in major retailers, and we will continue to pursue new and exciting ventures.  We are also committed to reducing the environmental impact of the business and significantly reducing our carbon footprint. 

The Role

Success within the food industry takes more than just being good at sales, it is essential to understand your products and processes and be in a position to support your customers to make the right purchasing decisions.

Cranswick values the need to train and develop graduate talent which is why we operate a programme that exposes our new recruits to all areas of our operational business for the first year.

You will be involved in projects and real work on farms, in the abattoir and on the production lines understanding the need for purchasing, animal welfare, health and safety, technical specifications and our production and packing processes.

Our sales and marketing teams are working closely with the major food retailers, branded lines and food service sectors – your passion for good food and the highest quality will really come through.

What is exciting about working for us?
