As we continue to grow, we need more team members!Heiwa Tofu manufactures high quality tofu and soymilk using organic Maine and New England grown soybeans. Our production crew is small, but central to the success of the business. Initial responsibilities involve tofu production work, precision cutting and packing tofu, daily cleanup and record keeping. Opportunities exist to learn and become involved with many aspects of running a small business: marketing, distribution, product development, bookkeeping and finance, equipment maintenance and repair, shipping and receiving, warehouse management, scaling and growth strategies, to name a few. Challenges of the job involve demanding physical work in a fast paced and busy (but fun) workplace, repetitive tasks, and adhering to stringent food safety protocols. This is a year-round position available immediately.
The right candidate must:
1. have a strong work ethic and commitment to being a team member in a growing, family-run business
2. be able to learn and follow stringent food safety protocol, yet be able to quickly adapt to changes.
3. have reliable transportation to the facility in Rockport. ME
4. be able to lift 30 lbs

These shifts have a slightly more flexible start time (in the morning, though) and last about 5 hours. We don’t operate during the nights or weekends, but are busy year round, with a few slow periods around the holidays.
Pay starts at $12/hr and raises to $15/hr once it is clear you are committed to the team and to performing excellent work.
