Job Opening: Local Food Production Manager

We’re looking for the right mix of production and management skills to add
to our Farm-to-Institution social enterprise, Just Cut!

Just Cut is a social enterprise of the Center for Agricultural Economy and
an essential connection between food growers and buyers that operates out
of one of the Vermont Food Venture Center’s (VFVC) commercial
kitchens. We purchase,
inspect, wash, prepare (by hand and machine) and deliver Vermont-grown
produce to kitchens both large and small. By partnering with local farmers,
food buyers across New England, and a regional delivery network, we help
ensure the viability of Vermont’s working landscapes and provide greater
accessibility of high-quality produce to all markets. Just Cut’s highest
aspiration is to show that a conscious, conscientious supply chain is
possible - one that strives to do well by all food system participants,
from the land to the farmer to the processor to the consumer.


Reports to: Just Cut Program Manager and VFVC Facilities Manager

Full-time: 40 hours/week

The Local Food Production Manager role is a critical position for the
aggregation, processing, and distribution of ready-to-use local and
regional produce products for institutional and bulk buyers. Operating
within a shared-use kitchen poses logistical and food safety challenges
that require consistent attention to detail. The primary goals of the
program are to provide farmers with new markets, and consistently provide
institutions with high quality local processed products. An emphasis is
placed on buyers that feed food insecure individuals (schools, hospitals
and colleges).
