The food and beverage industry involves a vast collective of organizations that supply products to both businesses and consumers all over the world. Aside from hunter-gatherers and subsistence farmers, virtually every other food or beverage worker is involved with this industry.

Despite the food and beverage sector’s sheer size, more hardworking, competent, and skilled workers are needed at every level almost daily.

That’s why manufacturing headhunting and recruiting in the food and beverage industry is so crucial.

Simply put, at Kane Partners, we provide staffing for the food and beverage industry for careers in Information Technology (IT), Engineering, Manufacturing, Software, Creative, Design, Sales, and Accounting. We’re a staffing organization that companies across the U.S. rely on to identify talent and connect them with organizations in order to solve all their employment challenges.

We can guarantee a timely, responsive, and high-quality service when your organization is working with us in order to expand your talent pool.

Though we have experience recruiting and headhunting across various industry categories, we pride ourselves on improving the manufacturing sector within the food and beverage industry.

Food and beverage manufacturing includes the processing of meats and cheeses and the creation of soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, packaged foods, and other modified foods. There are thousands of organizations across the U.S. that are constantly looking for new help and new hires. That’s where Kane Partners comes into play.

“I’ve worked with Kane Partners for a few positions over the past… At the outset, they dove into the requirements and put together a comprehensive candidate profile. From that profile, they’ve submitted candidates for the positions that were both qualified and a good fit for the soft skills we require. Honestly, I would have hired everyone they sent over if I could. Thank you!”

Said Kathy, a manufacturing client who took advantage of our skills and ended up finding great team members!

It’s important to note that although times are tough for just about everyone right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, manufacturing in the food and beverage industry remains on the up and up. In fact, according to the latest Thomas Industrial Survey, 69% of manufacturers indicate they are “likely” to “extremely likely” to reshore.

In addition to manufacturing, there are a handful of other subcategories of the food and beverage industry, including:

  • Agriculture — Science and art of cultivating plants, crops, and livestock.
  • Food Processing — Preparation of fresh products for market, as well as the manufacturing of prepared food products.
  • Education — Academic, consultancy, vocational.
  • Research and Development — Technology impacting food and beverage manufacturing.
  • Distribution — Logistics, transportation, and warehousing.
  • Foodservice — Businesses, institutions, and companies responsible for any meal prepared outside the home (restaurants, cafeterias, catering, etc.).
  • Marketing — Promotion of generic products, new products, advertising, packaging, public relations, and more.
  • Financial Services — Data entry, insurance, credit, etc.
  • Retail — Grocery, farmers’ markets, public markets, etc.

Working in any one of these sectors can be extremely rewarding — and we can help you get there. But it’s time to take a deeper dive into the world of food and beverage manufacturing:

Manufacturing Recruiting in the Food and Beverage Industry

Recruiting refers to the process of identifying, attracting, interviewing, selecting, hiring, and onboarding employees.

Without manufacturing recruitment, hiring top employees would come down to chance. Though everyone deserves a shot at a thriving career, there are millions of underqualified, unskilled, and lazy people tossing out applications across the digital realm. Manufacturing recruiting in the food and beverage industry can help filter through many of those unqualified prospects, and pair your company with some of the hardest working and skilled workers around.

No matter your company’s reputation, products, or services, you simply will not be able to succeed in this industry without a team of top-level talent. The quality of your staff needs to be prioritized, at all times, and looked at as not just a necessity, but your organization’s strongest asset. In order to reach these exceptional levels of staff quality, however, it’s a must that you work alongside an experienced staffing company like Kane Partners.

We have a large professional network with an ever-growing and vast pool of ready-to-work candidates.

Manufacturing Headhunting in the Food and Beverage Industry

Recruiting is an essential step in the hiring and onboarding process for just about every industry. Headhunting is similar but can offer even better results. Manufacturing headhunting in the food and beverage industry can pair top candidates with top companies, leading to a long-lasting professional relationship and all kinds of levels of success.

Since the early 2000s, Kane Partners has been creating great matches for food and beverage manufacturing professionals and companies alike.

If your business has a specific need for a certain position, and you’ve exhausted through stacks and stacks of resumes, it’s time for a new approach. Perhaps one of the most surefire strategies to land a top candidate for your business is to let Kane Partners go after that talent for you.

Headhunting goes a little more in-depth than recruitment and is typically meant for filling senior positions. Rather than have your top-level executives search for qualified candidates, when their time could be better used for other projects, Kane Partners will do all the legwork for you — and identify, connect with, and potentially bring on the perfect match for whatever position needs filling.

Recruiters will typically pull from a list of interested, qualified, and skilled job seekers — which is great for filling all kinds of manufacturing jobs in the food and beverage industry. Headhunters will do that, sure, but they won’t stop there. Headhunting involves actively pursuing any professional with the experience and qualifications required for a certain senior-level job. Maybe the perfect candidate lives across the country and is currently employed for your competitor. That won’t stop us from reaching out, discussing terms, and potentially bringing that worker in for an interview.

This isn’t as far-fetched an idea as it sounds, either. In fact, according to a study by Willis Towers Watson, over 70% of employees are willing to leave their current employer to advance their career. We’ll do everything in our power to find skilled candidates that will help take your food and beverage organization to the next level.
