We make sure that Co-op branded products always meet the quality standards our customers have come to expect and trust. Managing the supply chain from supplier to store, we take an active part in the development and launch of products in their categories.
You’ll be accountable for delivering specific projects and managing a defined range of products. This would involve building technical knowledge about the products, gaining an understanding the Co-op customer requirements, working collaboratively with suppliers and developing effective relationships with Co-op colleagues in other functions, such as buyers.
Food product development
Own Label products are extremely important to the Co-op. And product development is the team that looks after the quality and innovation of our Co-op brand. Working closely with other parts of our business and our supply partners, we’re the people who make sure our products are market leading in quality, value for money and innovation – as this is what our customers have come to expect.
As part of the development team, you’ll provide support and input into the development of our own label offer. You’ll get involved with projects across a number of different categories, alongside a number of different stakeholders both internally and externally. Guided by a Senior Product Developer, you’ll be encouraged to learn and progress, before eventually managing a small category of your own.
