Culinology R&D Intern



Welch's is the most iconic grape juice and jelly brand in the world and is owned by a co-op of nearly 1,000 family farmers who own vineyards in Pennsylvania, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Washington state, and Ontario.  As 100% of our profits go to our farmers, our mission is to allow our farmer/owners to pass on a thriving farm to their sons and daughters. 

Welch's is undergoing a transformation to reinvent, re-energize the brand and become a faster moving and more entrepreneurial company.  We have a mission to start acting like a small challenger brand and company to compete in an extremely fragmented and innovation driven beverage category.  Most people don't know that we're a co-op and not owned by Coke or Pepsi, nor do they know that the Concord grape is a super fruit with the same kinds of benefits as other fruits like pomegranate.  Come help us create some new stuff with our amazing grapes!

Who You Are:

  • A budding Chef, Culinologist or Food Scientist with an enthusiasm for building excitement around the inherent beauty of agriculture based ingredients
  • An inspired thinker who can come up with creative recipes and/or product ideas
  • Someone who wants a cool summer job that can help their resume, support the degree in culinary or food science you’re working on, but doesn’t involve nights or weekends in a restaurant

What You'll Do:

  • Create new and unique uses of our grape ingredients to feed our innovation pipeline
  • Spend most of your time at the lab benchtop or culinary test kitchen, but also work collaboratively with commercial colleagues in insights and marketing
  • Lead your own projects with help and guidance of the Manger of Culinary Innovation and Product Development

What You'll Need:

  • Progress on a degree related to culinary or food science
  • A passion for creating food from heirloom agriculture and family farmers
  • Creativity - ability to create and be a builder of great ideas
  • High energy/go getter/executor – we’ll be working fast and want lots of ideas

What You'll Enjoy:

  • A Family farmer owned company dictates our culture – we’re real people, we work hard and are passionate about what we do. We also know that summer is awesome so we close our office at 12:30 on Fridays.
  • Our location in Concord, MA is accessible from the commuter rail (7-10 minute walk) and we have a business casual attire (including jeans!)
  • Because we're a co-op, there is no 'corporate office' or layers of bureaucracy to get through to get stuff done.  

We look forward to your application - don't be afraid to be creative!
