About the role:
Based in Comrie, Perthshire, Dalchonzie produces both sweet and savoury preserves on a small batch basis, with hand-made, traditional open pot methods still being used in the process. Dalchonzie uses locally sourced berries and fruits in the making of its preserves. We have a selection of delicious jams, marmalades, chutneys and preserves - all made with local produce.
We are looking for a Food Production Assistant to work in our busy production kitchen, producing our range of Dalchonzie jams, jellies and chutneys.
This is a hands-on and varied role so previous experience in a food production environment would be advantageous.
Other responsibilities may include
- Working to production plans
- Compliance with Health and Safety legislation
- Knowledge of food hygiene and safety
- cleaning production utensils, equipment and machinery
Our production operation runs Monday to Friday and the working hours are as required to meet the business needs, therefore flexibility will be required from the successful candidate.
