Full of beans: the role of a food technology specialist at Melitta.
One thing you should know: more than 100 years after Melitta Bentz filed a patent application for her first coffee filter and thus laid the foundation for the internationally successful family business, the caffeine-filled bean still plays a pivotal role for Melitta. And Melitta leaves nothing to chance: it relies on the expert knowledge of food technology specialists for the roasting and grinding of its coffees – a product still on trend after all these years.
And not without reason: after all, the company operates in the highly competitive roasted coffee market and needs to uphold its excellent distribution reach in the retail sector – and consolidate and expand its high level of consumer acceptance. The work of the food technology specialist at Melitta should not be underestimated. These experts are involved in the entire production process. From the accepting and testing of the green coffee beans, to the storing of this sensitive product, to the green-lighting of the finished product.
Extensive computer and programming skills have long been part of the food technology specialist’s job profile. For example, in order to ensure the optimum performance of the plant’s complex equipment – or for the loading of packaging machines. It goes without saying that the job calls for a very high degree of organizational talent, diligence and reliability.
At Melitta, food technology specialists are constantly challenged to demonstrate their professional and technical skills:
- Checking the delivered green coffee beans
- Setting the correct roasting profile
- Controlling all processes
- Monitoring production
- Training for work preparation
- Operating and servicing the machines
- Troubleshooting and repairing
- Quality management and assurance
- Compliance with defined hygiene standards
