A fantastic opportunity to develop your career with an award winning grower of fresh produce.
We grow and process an extensive range of salads, speciality herbs, fresh herbs and edible flowers.
Our award winning produce can be found in retail outlets across the nation, as well as being served up in commercial kitchens within the likes of pubs and restaurants throughout the UK.
We sell our products through the foodservice wholesaler/ distributor network, as well as into food manufacturing businesses.
We have been established for almost 30 years and we are proud to be the largest family run herbs company in the UK.
Due to plans for growth, we are now recruiting a Key Account Manager to support us on our journey to further success. The successful candidate will have great opportunities to progress and develop their career further within our business.
The successful candidate will be responsible for a large proportion of our business, tasked with managing and growing our largest accounts.

As a senior member of our business, the successful candidate will also be involved in implementing sales strategies to assist our growth plans and working with our existing team to move the business forward.
Although the main aspect of the role will entail developing and growing relationships with our distributor partners and food manufacturing businesses, there will also be some contact at end user level, to promote sales and expose our business.
