Ready Roast Nut Company was established in 2006 by a trio of professionals from the food processing industry who saw an opportunity to address the growing demand for value-added tree nuts. We started with a processing facility in Hughson, CA (USA) where we produce large volumes of oil and dry roasted nuts for the dairy and other food processing industries.
In 2007 we acquired Madera Quality Nut (MQN) facilities. MQN was a well established nut processor who had been serving ingredient buyers worldwide since 1996 and continues to be a strong and trusted brand for natural, roasted and manufactured almonds and tree nuts.
Our most recent facility was completed in 2012. Also located in Madera, it allows us to offer even more to our customers; incorporating the latest technologies for quality, sustainability, stringent controls for food safety and added space for increased processing and storage capacity.
This position is responsible for operating the main laser line and related equipment while acting as lead person on the processing floor.
Provide leadership for sort staff, and operators and ensure RRNC policies and procedures are being followed, including adherence to GMP's, SOP's, safety guidelines and adequate breaks/lunches.
