Production Lead / Glacier

Malai seeks a full-time or part-time Production Lead / Glacier who will serve as a point-person for kitchen related day-to-day activities, including producing ice cream and other goods for our retail store, ecommerce, wholesale and fairs and markets. The Production Lead / Glacier will be responsible for product and process quality to ensure the highest level of customer and consumer satisfaction.
