In Europe our product range is mainly focused on infants with food allergies. This is not just a factory.

  • Keep abreast on pediatric nutrition science and investigate potential implications for the business
  • Provide hands on support to the EU Nutrition Science team 
  • Perform other Nutrition Science-related tasks as needed

You’ll succeed because… have a degree qualified (Msc in Nutrition Science or other relevant scientific discipline)

You’ll love it because…

…you’ll get to make an impact like never before. You’ll support the EU Nutrition Science team and contribute to making products that will make people’s lives better.
