Food Technology

The Waitrose brand is intrinsically linked to quality food and it’s our Food Technologists who ensure it stays that way. They’re responsible for managing the safety, legality and quality of our Waitrose & Partners own-label products, our great value “Essentials” range and specified John Lewis & Partners food lines. They also manage compliance, to Waitrose & Partners Technical Standards, across our own-label supply base.


All our Food Technologists are qualified to degree standard in food science, nutrition, microbiology, or similar scientific degrees. In addition, experience in a technical role in retail or manufacturing is hugely beneficial.
