Innovation is at the heart of the Food and Ingredients industry.

The connection between our eating habits and our health has never been more prevalent, and new technologies have allowed health conscious consumers to gain more knowledge than ever before about what their bodies need. Accordingly, this sector has experienced an explosion in demand for sustainable options, whether it be natural ingredients, free-from products, or protein alternatives. Combining this with continued price pressure from food retailers and consumers alike, the need for dynamic, innovative leaders is vital to success in this industry.

Connect has an unrivalled track record of partnering some of the most progressive organisations in the sector. Our global network, spanning Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, combined with our proactive approach has enabled us to fulfil a diverse range of business-critical hires to ensure that our clients stay ahead of their competition.

Working across all segments of the food & ingredients market, including beverages, flavours, and fragrances, and with businesses from Fortune and FTSE listed Groups to small and medium sized enterprises, our knowledge, level of insight and international candidate network are key factors in our success rate.
