  • Looking at raw material sample scheduling and communication & utilising NIR for the ingredients validation and checks.
  • You’ll be supporting R&D activities in the practical assessment of new technologies and their capability to characterise raw material suitability for Huel products. 📊
  • You’ll be responsible for creating & managing QAS Standards & devising scientific studies to assess ingredient behaviour over shelf life & how this subsequently impacts the quality attributes of Huel products 🚩
  • Looking after the sample submissions for external laboratory testing, this includes allergens, micro, aflatoxins & heavy metals.
  • Working cross-functionally with wider teams including NPD & Procurement with leading testing of new ingredients that come into the business. 🌾
  • Taking care of delivery rejections & non-conformances with suppliers.
