Applicants have to undergo a rigorous selection process before they are chosen for the paid role, a Nestle spokesperson told the York Press.
It is important that prospective workers are able to tell the difference between sourness and bitterness, which is apparently not something everyone can do.
The tasters also need to be able to articulate themselves and clearly describe the product they are trying out and be able to work as part of a team.
“We believe that the talents of our tasters play a vital role. Nestle produces some of the biggest and most popular confectionery products made to the highest standard. We need passionate individuals with high sensory skills and good communication skills to ensure that taste and quality is not compromised,” the spokesperson told the news provider.
This week, Nestle announced it would be increasing its recycling target in Europe.
Previously, it aimed to make 90 per cent of its packaging recyclable but it has increased this to 95 per cent now.
