About Acid League Inc.
We are a team of chefs, food scientists, winemakers, designers, and makers of all kinds. Our products are science-driven experiments in acid, with a chef's focus on flavor. We started by reimagining vinegar, creating living vinegars with both bold flavors and good gut health benefits. Vinegars that are raw, unfiltered, and always fermented with premium fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices. Now, we're reinventing non-alcoholic wine with our Wine Proxies and bringing new life to every item in your pantry. Vinaigrettes, hot sauces, condiments, and beyond. Brightness with balance, sour with soul. The push to create new experiences on the edges of acid never ends, and we invite you to join us on the journey.

Job Description
Acid League is looking for a Production Assistant to support the production of Acid League’s Wine Proxies. Wine Proxies are layered blends of juices, teas, spices, bitters, and more with all the complexity of great wine, and none of the alcohol. It’s wine, but not.

This role is part-time and will include a combination of day, evening and weekend shifts. 

The ideal candidate has prior experience as a cellar-hand or in a culinary setting, although this is not required. 

What You Will Be Doing
- Handling unique ingredients, including but not limited to: fresh pressed juices, juice concentrates, vinegars, teas, bitters, spices, functional ingredients ie. preservatives, and more.
- Processing produce (cutting, peeling, pureeing, etc.) 
- Hot water extractions (tea leaves, flowers, berries, etc.)
- Following recipe instructions, making additions and taste testing
- Enforcing quality standards and alerting the Production Manager of any quality problems
- Operating basic equipment (brewing kettle, electric liquid transfer pump, etc.)
- Cleaning and sanitizing equipment
- General clean-up of the facility, as it relates to Wine Proxy production
- Assisting the Production Manager on any additional day-to-day tasks as required 

You Can Expect To
- Collaborate closely with the Head of Beverage Development, Production Manager, and other Wine Proxy Production Assistants.
- Work independently and carry out tasks with minimal supervision.
- Play an integral role in the rapid growth of both Acid League’s Wine Proxy business as well as the non-alcoholic beverage product category

- Must be flexible with scheduling.
- Must be able to lift 40lbs and stand for extended periods.
- Must be comfortable with hands-on, physical work and up to 10 hr shifts at times.
- Must be able to get to/from the production facility (near The Queensway x Dixie Rd).

Not required, but a major plus
-Interest in culinary, wine, and/or food & beverage production.
-Prior work experience in a kitchen, wine or beer cellar, or food manufacturing environment.
-Education in chemistry, food science or brewing is an asset

COVID-19 Considerations
To keep our workers as safe as possible, we have implemented mandatory temperature checks daily before each shift. Sign-in is mandatory and everyone who does not pass will have to quarantine and provide COVID-19 test results before returning to work.

We strongly encourage individuals from communities that are underrepresented in the packaged foods or manufacturing industries to apply for this position. We see diversity and inclusion as a core strength for business, and society, and we strive to make Acid League a great place for all to work.
