Utilizing years of experience and knowledge about global sourcing, production and usage of food ingredients, Vitachem developed its business model from being just a regional distributor of food ingredients into becoming a company with European sales, own brand, global purchasing and production.

Due to the rapid growth of the company during the last 24 months, we do not only need to win new business, but we need to also improve continuously our internal organization and processes. Although we like to have a creative mindset in our team, for this position we would love to find a person who likes to have things well organized and who is able to improve and establish processes and routines.

Vitachem will introduce soon a new ERP system including DMS, CRM, Work-flow Management, therefore the ideal candidate would have experience to utilize abilities and advantages of a central ERP system.

taking on new responsibilities
- You think solutions rather than problems
- You have your own ideas and you are able to take decisions
