About the job

In this challenging postion, you are responsible for the Quality in design and innovation with our 3PM’s.

The focus lies on realising product validations where safety and quality are key.

In your position as a Quality and food safety manager you will be managing improvement projects, including related complaint management. 

In these projects you will be working with logistics partners (Logistic operations/Sales teams). 


An important part of the rol is the auditing of the 3PM’s and external warehouses for which you are in charge.

This means the validation of new partners; the yearly control of existing  partners and the follow up of first productions.


Next to that, you are responsible to guarantee the end-to-end process of traceability from market’s perspective, making sure you have a full overview of this process. This happens in close collaboration with our internal and external operational stakeholders.


You report directly to the Head of Quality & Food Safety Belux, and will be working mainly from the office in Brussels (which can be combined with working from home or other Danone-offices in Belgium).

About you

As you will be managing your own projects around innovation and R&D; being able to prioritize is key.

Next to that, you are energized by having contacts with many different stakeholders: Projectteams, Marketing/R&D/Sales/Operations teams/3PM’s and also with partners on the floor.

In this role, we expect you to be an autonomous worker, with about 3 to 6 years experience.

If you are seeking a balance between office work and working ‘on the floor’, this role can offer you the right balance.


Globally, if you seek an environment where you can develop your project management skills and the elements mentioned above sound like you, then this postion is made for you.

Finally, important to mention that you are flexible to travel to different Danone-locations in Belgium

And last but not least, the working language is English, to be comfortable in your role, the knowledge of Dutch is definitely a plus.
