Organic breakfast and snack foods company Nature’s Path is hiring at its Blaine facility.
According to associate vice president of operations David Pickrell, the company is seeking to add about 20 to 30 new employees in Blaine. “You could be a forklift operator, or you could be trained in a highly technical role in our food production process,” he said. “You could be a maintenance technician, a quality analyst or someone packaging food and putting it into cases for retail sale. I think we’ve got something for everybody.”
Pickrell said that with food flying off grocery store shelves during the COVID-19 crisis, the family-owned company is ramping up production at its Blaine facility, which currently has about 250 full- and part-time employees.
The company is looking to add to its team of “heroes,” as Pickrell called them due to their role in feeding families in Blaine and beyond.
“We’re grateful to be able to offer a job for folks especially in these times,” he said. “One of the things we’re seeing is the need to get food out there. One of the last things people want to be worrying about is what they are going to eat tomorrow. Healthy food is essential for our community.”
Meanwhile, Nature’s Path has rewarded all of its Blaine employees with a one-time $250 bonus and increased its employee referral bonus to $1,000. The company, which was founded in 1985 and is headquartered in Richmond, B.C., has also increased hourly wages for all of its employees in Blaine.
