Arla Foods Ingredients (AFI) is an independent company within the Arla Foods Group and a global leader in natural whey ingredients for many different categories including bakery, beverages, dairy, infant and sport nutrition. One of the cornerstones in our business is our dedicated experts that develop solutions with our functional and nutritional whey proteins, milk minerals, lactose and permeate.

Here, you can be sure to influence the products, ways of working and projects in a company whose produce is known for having the industry’s highest levels of quality, innovation and food safety.  

Work across functions and handle your own product portfolio

You join the customer team in our Global QEHS as part of the Supply Chain organization as a QEHS officer. We start each day discussing current requests and reviewing and delegating new ones. Like the rest of us, you will become responsible for a defined range of AFI products in relation to QEHS matters and act as the link between customers, sales and production. Thus, you work across functions to provide qualified service to all stakeholders as you e.g.:

Comment and review customer questionnaires as well as purchase and product specifications
Do quality alignment and troubleshooting across production sites
Support or drive complaint handling and ensure that policies and legal compliance are kept
Use your QEHS knowledge in global projects, e.g. related to optimising our ways of working, new products or monitoring

To excel in this position, you are ready to act as a liaison between customers, our supply chain and sales organisation and the rest of AFI. Through your positive engagement, you ensure proactive collaboration and communication, thus enabling our product portfolio through numerous simultaneous tasks.
