VG Meats seeks Sausage Maker Maestro

Are you an experienced sausage maker and champion of the local food movement who is excited about crafting the perfect sausages and being at the forefront of a growing farm-to-table meat company?

Do you intimately savour and embrace that local food has unique value to the producer, the consumer and the community?

Are you an engaging communicator who can chat in a down-to-earth style with consumers and corporate retail clients and also possesses the genuiness and vocabulary to talk about what makes your sausages so special and tasty that one bite has the palette hooked?

You could be the perfect fit we're looking for!

Who we are

VG Meats is a successful and savvy established family business located in Simcoe, Ontario. To us, rural living is the greatest, friendliest place on Earth. We're not just a meat company. We're farmers too. Compassion and caring are big in everything we do. We've been stringing together (hey, after all, we're talking about sausages!) some impressive growth in the sausage side of our business. And now we've got a big-time exciting opportunity to grow that even more. That's why we need a sausage maestro. You're the expert who will lead the way for VG Meats.

What you need to bring to the cutting table and beyond

You need to be up for a challenge. You'll need to plan and implement how we meet the demands of supplying product, reducing waste on the floor, ensuring quality control and food safety, be frugal at managing inventories, scheduling the smokehouse, and be inventive in creating new products (with available resources) for this exciting opportunity.

You'll need to be super at mentoring staff. You need to have the kind of sausage enthusiasm that is contagious. We want someone who eats, sleeps and breathes about particle definition, uniformity, bite, pH and seasoning.

Oh, and you'll be the kind of person with the confidence to tell people when they aren't making sausages that are up to standards. And yes, that means having the confidence to tell the bosses too. (We want someone we can learn from too!) Above all, you are known for your sincerity, humbleness and showing respect to others.
