The Happy Healthy Produce Company Manor, TX floor $12 - $14/hr full_time Varies. Typically 7am - 4pm 14 Jun 2018
We need a high energy Foodie who wants to promote the healthiest, best-tasting produce in Central Texas to consumers, chefs and produce managers across Austin. We need a problem solver who can work independently and has a passion to get everyone on the Happy Healthy Produce train.
Job Summary / Responsibilities:
1. Work directly with local chefs by calling on restaurants that use organic produce or have a desire to use high quality locally grown lettuce and greens. After introducing chefs to our products, teach them how best to place orders through the wholesalers they are currently using. We partner with some of the best wholesalers in the industry – Farm to Table, Hardies, FreshPoint and others.
2. Build relationships with local retail Produce Managers at H.E.Bs, Central Market, Whole Foods, Wheatsville and independent grocers. Ensure our product is fresh and in stock, looks healthy and the employees are knowledgeable about the best grown produce in Central Texas. Demos are a big part of this relationship and whenever you do a retail tasting both Customers and Produce Managers will love your enthusiastic smile and passion for our product.
3. Hydroponic Farmer – you don’t just get to promote and sell our products, you get to farm them too. Whenever we need help at our Manor facility (12 greenhouses of healthy sunshine and green produce) you will get to seed, plant, harvest and package our delicious leafy greens. You will get your hands dirty, sweat like crazy and help us to get our product from the farm to the table in record time to retain freshness.
4. Buyer contact – we do businesses with some of the topic sellers of lettuce and greens in the Austin area. While purchase orders are handled by our GM, we need someone who can interface directly with buyers – the occasional hotshot orders, resolve issues that arise locally and help our local partners with any product training needs.
