Production Supervisor

Processing is carried out in a USFDA Registered Export Packhouse, processing oysters for the NZ domestic and overseas export markets, including Japan, Asia, Australia, EU, USA and Russia.

CCO® are looking to expand our production with new farming area developments, so need more qualified staff to ensure the high quality that has resulted in CCO® being NZ’s top oyster, is maintained.

Highest standards of Quality Control, and good production systems are imperative to achieve this.

This role is full time Monday to Friday, possibly Saturday work required and salary and hours to be discussed at time of interview.


Ideally tertiary qualifications in Food Science/Production, with some experience in a food processing facility.


The position would suit a self-motivated, dedicated and honest person who would like to further themselves in the export and domestic processing part of Clevedon Coast Oysters.

As the person becomes more confident and knowledgeable in the operation, the job would morph into the role of Production Supervisor who would be responsible for all of the daily factory production.

Other tasks will include:

  • Attending with our QC and interacting with MPI Inspectors in audits,
  • Export documentation and certification,
  • Improving productivity,
  • Staff management,
  • Product development,
