Food Safety & Quality Assurance Manager

Job Title: Food Safety & Quality Assurance Manager

Company: JULIENNE BRUNO
Location: HQ, JULIENNE BRUNO, Unit 3, Stonefield Close, HA4 0GH


ABOUT US


We create naturally plant-based original products.


How we eat and what we eat is changing, and changing fast. Yet, plant-based products are still seen as an “alternative”, which usually means a compromise. We are changing that starting with our ‘Collection 01’, a dairy-free experience consisting of three products: Burrella, Crematta and Superstraccia. See our products in use here.


We are a fast growing, venture capital backed food brand based in London hiring for roles with ample opportunities to build, learn, and grow. The team is composed of experienced operators with backgrounds in building long lasting F&B concepts as well as high scale tech ventures.
