Forward thinking food engineer

Fulltime - Deventer

We are Vaess. For more than 75 years we engineer the food for tomorrow. We create and produce forward thinking solutions that allow our customers, food companies, to create the Food for Tomorrow. In our focus areas we want to be the best. We ask our application team to spend 20%-25% of their time to work on pro-active new ideas. From creating vegan food, to making the perfect cooking yield in meat, shelf life in fish to creating the perfect sausage or filled bakery product, we always go one step further.

We are a dynamic team with huge ambitions. We have a complete food pilot plant, own laboratories and around 60 great colleagues to work with. Although we focus on Europe, we are active globally because our customers ask us to do so. We like to work with companies that have the same ‘blood group’, food professionals that are looking to shape the market that we are working in.
