At Umami Search, we work not only for, but alongside, companies of all sizes within the food ingredient and flavour and fragrance manufacturing industries. However, each company receives the bespoke recruitment consultancy service that they want, need, and deserve.

Let us be your external recruitment partner

We don’t see ourselves as a recruitment agency. We see ourselves as a recruitment partner to your business as opposed to just an external supplier. Our consultants will take the time to really learn about you and your business, and this attention to detail ensures a deeper understanding, a stronger relationship, and ensures that we can help you to grow more effectively.

Bespoke and Personable

Umami Search offer a transparent, honest, and tailored approach to recruitment in our sector. We go the extra mile for our clients; for example, offering you market maps and salary benchmarking for all senior appointments, along with feedback at each stage of the process – from the initial taking of a job brief through to offer.

Size really doesn’t matter

We partner with companies and organisations that range from large corporates and global top 10 F&F houses to SME owner-led businesses, including client relationships with some of the most well-known names in the market, along with having a number of sole supplier agreements in place. At Umami, we also have a deep knowledge of the international ingredients market, with a broad experience in supporting leaders within nutrition, flavour and fragrance manufacturers who improve the taste, texture, shelf life & nutritional value of the products we consume daily.
