For a leading global supplier of specialty (added-value) savoury taste ingredients we are looking for a Senior Taste Scientist. Their ingredients are known for over 70 years for quality, cost effectiveness and innovation. They are providing customers with a broad array of customised solutions to enhance consumer differentiation. The company has experienced tremendous growth since their divesture and MBO (Management Buy Out) several years ago from a leading publically traded, best in class, value added ingredient supplier. The business is niche oriented and is well positioned for strategic growth, building on its existing customer base and demand for their products and services. They have a worldwide network of distributors and dedicated sales forces to support their long term growth objectives.
Within this organisation, a research group is formed to develop the new authentic savoury taste product for the future. This group is working on different disciplines such as sensory, taste technology, taste science and regulatory affairs. The group is responsible for the complete development of the new products, starting from a product concept until production in one of the factories. The Senior Taste Scientist will be responsible for developing new tastes through hydrolyses of proteins and/or Maillard reaction. You will work closely with colleagues of the research department and through experience and personality you are capable to guide them to develop their skills and capabilities. As a senior member of the research team you support decision making within the organisation with a strong team scientific background. The Senior Taste Scientist will report directly to the General Manager.
