Litehouse Foods is looking to hire a strategic full-time Mixer. Would you like to work for a 100% employee-owned food manufacturing company with an outstanding reputation as both a community leader and a great place to work? If so, please read on!

This Mixer Position earns a competitive salary, based on experience. We also offer excellent benefits, including health, dental, vision, a 401(k) with matching, paid time off (PTO), and life insurance. If this sounds like the right opportunity in recruitment for you, consider applying today!


As a Mixer, you are crucial to producing quality, detailed and complex high-value recipes. You will handle the measuring, loading, and blending of our quality ingredients into the blending equipment, while using advanced batch automation systems to create the finished products.

Our mixers use data systems to maintain inventory accuracy and traceability-and use scanners to ensure the oldest ingredients are mixed first (FIFO). You'll perform physically demanding work that requires good hand-eye coordination, attention to detail, strength, and stamina. The Mixer must have the physical ability to lift and carry 55-pound bags independently throughout their shift.

You hold yourself accountable for adhering to strict allergen guidelines, maintaining cleanliness in the work area, and meeting quality requirements. You are self-motivated and work with minimal supervision. Safety, attention to detail, and accuracy are a high priority. Your knack for communicating effectively is essential to establishing relationships with internal and external stakeholders alike.


  • High School Diploma/GED Strongly preferred
  • 0-3 years experience
  • Ability to use computer-based batch automation technology
  • Detail orientated, self-motivated, focused and autonomous
  • Frequently, repetitively lift up to 55 lbs. independently
  • Ability to pass a background check and pre-employment drug test

Are you passionate about quality products? Do you have a safety-first mindset? Are you tech savvy with a strong attention to detail? If so, you might just be perfect for this Mixer position!
