This company has a long history in the Food Production industry, and is a pioneer in their product category with excellent opportunity to grow . Today, they’ve tapped Argentus to help them source a Procurement Manager for Food Ingredients!
Working out of the company’s office in Toronto, ON, and reporting to senior leadership in the business, this Procurement Manager will take on overall accountability for sourcing and purchasing of the company’s food ingredient raw materials, with the goal of lowering costs and identifying opportunities for strategic innovation.
