Food Scientist – with process knowledge, Nr. Vium

Do you want to work with food ingredients development and use your skills to make, milk-based ingredients in powder form?

Arla Foods Ingredients (AFI) is an independent company within the Arla Foods Group, with an ambition to become the true global leader in value-added whey. Your new work place is in AFI R&D in Nr. Vium close to Herning. We employ 8 sharp and innovative profiles who all provide dedicated service to the development of ingredients by means of separation technology. Our growth ambition is huge, and we are in urgent need for capabilities that can strengthen our development projects.

Pilot production and new product development
As Food Scientist you will be the prime mover for a couple of designated projects within development of products and processes. Your job starts in the planning phase and ends with proper documentation of the project results and findings. In the intervening period you will make sure the project is carried through and assessed.

Pilot productions are an integral part of new product development cycles and you will help us excel in this. In close cooperation with our production sites and sales department you will head the implementation of new processes and products. You will attend seminars and build a wide range of contacts to customers, suppliers as well as Danish and foreign universities and researchers.

You will have a key role strengthening and further developing our expert resources within these areas and deliver the complete process from start to finish.

Technical profile with project manager skills
You are an Engineer in Dairy Science or Food Science or you have acquired comparable knowhow from another natural sciences degree. Your professional background has taught you all facts worth knowing about dairy processes, such as membrane filtration, heat treatment, evaporation, drying as well as other relevant processes. To be a success, it is important that you have at least basic knowledge of milk proteins, fat, minerals and their characteristics. You know that proper documentation is a very important part of a successful project, and you structure your workday and take pride in delivering according to time schedule.

You have acquired project manager competences and are able to navigate wisely in the project management tools, or you are willing to acquire the skills.

On the personal side, you are an independent profile with power and authority to work in a dynamic organisation where no two days are alike. It takes a great deal of can-do attitude and the ability to engage in co-operation with a long range of stakeholders in and outside Arla Foods.
