Adhere to site safety and food quality standards at all times.

Ensure a safe, clean and organised manufacturing environment at all times.

Complete required line start up checks.

Operate loading, blending and/or packaging line equipment to blend and pack powdered food ingredients according to batch specifications.

Monitor process parameters such as flow rates, blending times to ensure product consistency and quality.

Perform routine equipment setup, adjustments, and maintenance to maximise efficiency and minimise downtime.

Conduct quality checks on finished products to ensure they meet quality standards and regulatory requirements.

Follow standard operating procedures (SOPs) and safety guidelines to maintain a safe and clean work environment.
