Leprino Foods’ history dates to over 65 years ago, when the Leprino family first started making small batches of mozzarella for local markets and eateries in Denver. We’ve grown a bit since then. Today, we are the largest manufacturer of mozzarella and lactose in the world, and a leading producer of whey protein. Still owned by the Leprino family, we’ve set our sights to become the “World’s Best Dairy Food and Ingredient Company.” To help us achieve that ambitious vision, we’re looking for our secret ingredient: motivated individuals who are the absolute best at what they do. From three people in a small cheese shop in the early 1950s, we have grown to over 4,300 employees throughout our 16 global locations. Will you join us on our journey?


For our Denver corporate headquarters, we are seeking an Associate Supply Chain Analyst. The Associate Supply Chain Analyst is responsible for managing all inventory, shipping and receiving activity, as well as administrative functions for our Contracted Outside Warehouse locations (3PL). The Analyst acts as the owner of our account and leads all activities in these categories to support a 99%+ customer service target and profitable bottom line. We deliver exceptional Quality and Service at an Ethically Competitive Price. On average, the Analyst is responsible for 40MM+ pounds of inventory and 100+ customer orders per week across five to twelve facilities. Critical to this role is a continual review and reconciliation of inventory, including inventory rotation, product aging, inventory status and inventory levels by product and location. A successful analyst possesses a continuous improvement mindset, positive attitude, and ownership mentality. They will serve their customers internal and external, learn and be curious, and execute with a high degree of attention to detail.
