Bring your strategic and commercial acumen to provide leadership and direction in the development of our Insights and Category strategic agenda!

You know Sanitarium as one of New Zealand’s most trusted brands, selling the country’s number one breakfast cereal, Weet-Bix, and a range of other exciting products including Up&Go, Marmite and So Good.  We are passionate about what we do, believing in the potential of every Kiwi to live well.  Everything we do, from the foods we create to our role in the community and how we care for our staff, is guided by this philosophy.

About the role
