Food ingredient sales professionals sell products related to food and food production and provide customer service as representatives of their companies. Their jobs can vary from selling food equipment to products such as ingredients and flavourings. The work of a food ingredient sales representative is very similar to that of other sales representatives. However, your potential clients could be dispersed across a rural area. You'll demonstrate new products, equipment or services developed by your employer and persuade existing clients to consider using them.
