HACCP & Food Safety Coordinator - Honest Dumplings

Uproot Food Collective is a fast-growing, local business which manufactures gourmet frozen food products including Honest Dumplings, South Island Pie and Natural Kitchen Delights chocolates. Our brands are rooted in a belief that to create premium quality products we have to use premium quality ingredients - which includes the hard work that goes into each and every bite that leaves our kitchen. 

Joining a growth company is exciting and lots of hard work. None of us could do this alone so it’s a team effort and we are not afraid to jump in when things need to get done, from washing dishes in the kitchen to delivering products to grocery stores - we are all on the same team! The start-up culture isn’t for everyone but we’re all excited to be here, every day, and if you would be as well, give us a shout! 

We are looking for a passionate individual who is motivated to contribute to and learn about every aspect of a local food company. 

Uproot Food Collective wants to be a great place to work. We offer staff perks including paid lunch breaks, free dumplings, pies and chocolates, free products from Uproot Food Store, and staff discounts on everything in our store. (By the way, we also have an Uproot Food Store that has hundreds of local food products!)

Our kitchen shifts are normally between 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday. Different shifts/Overtime may be required.

■ Create formulas in HACCP software 

■ Create product labels 

■ Nutrition information analysis 

■ Work on the manufacturing production lines 

■ Make dumpling and pie fillings 

■ Packaging 

■ General cleaning and sanitizing 


You need to be certified in food safety. We take that very seriously. If you aren’t certified, we will help you get there but you gotta have the papers to work with us. You need to be a knife expert. Just kidding. But having experience in kitchen procedures is a huge asset because you’ll be doing prep work like cutting, mixing, and cooking. 

Serious bonus points if you have worked in a food manufacturing facility, led a kitchen team or have HACCP experience. 

You must be able to lift up to 50 lbs (because sometimes food is heavy) alone or with help. 

Have basic math, reading and writing skills. 

Be available to work varying shifts.
