How would you like to have a hand in Vancouver Island’s currently booming food production industry?
A household name for many, Epicure has grown from a modest Island-run business to a dinner-time staple for homes across not only Canada, but the United States, too – and they’re looking for workers to join their team!
Epicure was founded in Canada in 1997, by Sylvie Rochette.
As a busy mother of two, Sylvie aspired to share clean eating solutions she was already creating for her family.
Today, Sylvie and her daughter, CEO Amelia Warren, are leading the healthy food production movement – bringing busy families the time to reconnect across the table to share good food, eat healthy, and live better.
Epicure prides themsleves on the pursuit of clean eating, and is dedicated to sharing delicious meal solutions that use only real, whole ingredients – but while not compromising on taste.
Becoming a part of the Epicure Community means being a part of the bigger picture – and joining a team that looks to make a difference in the way the world eats.
Epicure is now hiring for jobs in their North Saanich production area, where spices are blended and containers are filled. Employees monitor the filling of jars, doing the job manually for some fine spices.
The company, which delivers across Canada and into the U.S., also needs people in its assembly area, where specialty boxes are put together, and in its distribution centre.
Orders have have been on the upswing as grocery shopping has become more challenging during the COVID-19 pandemic, and Epicure’s sellers have been staging cooking classes online.
Epicure has already hired some people who had been laid off, as well as high school and post-secondary students.
The company operates seven days a week and trains workers, and their starting wage is $15.25 per hour for daytime shifts, with an additional $1 per hour for evening work.
Epicure is deemed to be essential as a food service, and has introduced additional health and safety protocols due to the ongoing pandemic, including face masks, physical distancing and extra cleaning.
