About 1485

Ask us about the name later.

We’re a truly specialist recruitment business that focuses purely on Ingredients and Nutrition, throughout the UK and internationally too.

Within our chosen field, we work across 2 core specialisms: Food Ingredients & Human Nutrition, along with Animal Nutrition.

With a combined 25 years’ recruitment experience between the two owners, we can safely say that we understand the recruitment industry very well. We’ve seen it all in our time, and that’s why we deliberately keep things simple at 1485 – you won’t find fancy recruitment jargon or claims of having developed bulletproof “scientific processes” here. No clichés, either. We strive to provide a quality, thorough service that provides real value for clients, and offers a great experience to candidates.

If you want to have a chat, get in touch and let’s see if we can work together – we’ll always do our best but we won’t be afraid to say “no” if we don’t feel we’re well positioned to help you out.

1485. Focusing on the long-term, rather than short-term gains.

1485’s Food Ingredients & Nutrition division is led by Paul. Before building 1485, he studied Law and then began his recruitment career in 2008 – pretty dark times for the economy in the UK! He got a taste for it though, and built a new market from scratch in an established search firm – Food Ingredients.

Fast forward 12 years and he’s now worked with ingredients companies, flavour houses, VMS suppliers and sports nutrition brands across the UK, Europe and North America, predominantly recruiting in Sales, Marketing, General Management, Technical, Development & Supply Chain.

He loves watching, playing, and talking about all things sport, but especially football, rugby and cricket.

So, whether you’re a Technologist or an NPD Director, a Technical Sales Exec or a Commercial Director, a Buyer or a… I’m sure you get the idea. Get in touch and he’ll be happy to help, even if you just need a bit of advice.
