We live in an age of consumerism – a trend that won’t be slowing down any time soon. Not only are we indulging in a diverse range of Food & Beverages, but we are also splashing out on luxury skin-care products, performance enhancing supplements and personalised medicinal products. What makes this possible is an expansive choice of ingredients and additives. The modern consumer doesn’t just want more choice, they also want high quality products that are health conscious, have a long shelf-life and are easy on the eye. This makes a demand for more ingredients and thus, more work from the manufacturers. Not only this, but there has been a well-needed shift from synthetic/chemical-based ingredients to natural, organic and (even more recently) plant-based alternatives. Similarly, the COVID-19 pandemic sparked a demand for Vitamins, Minerals, Pharmaceuticals and Health Foods – yet more demand for manufacturers.
So, what does this mean? It means that there has always been, and will always be, a demand to hire personnel with the expertise and “on-trend” thinking to ensure that the most innovative products are being offered in what is an extremely competitive market.
