Job Summary

About the company

Food waste is a $1 trillion problem – costing the world over 1% of global GDP. They’re dead set on solving the problem and looking for people to help them achieve their mission. They believe that food is far too valuable to waste, and that technology can transform the way they produce food. Their team is made of people who all share a passion for food and technology.

The company was founded in London in 2013 to help the hospitality industry prevent food waste through the internet of things tools in the kitchen. They have worked with hundreds of sites and are operating in over 30 countries around the world supported by our offices in London, Dubai, Shanghai, Singapore, Romania, and North America.

They are a rapidly growing company with a strong base of clients who are rolling out their system globally. They have blue-chip customers including Accor Hotels, IKEA, IHG, Marriott, Compass Group, and many others.

Their clients on average reduce waste by over 50% by value and sustain savings. They have now worked with hundreds of sites to reduce food waste, including hotels, universities and schools, staff restaurants, event/hospitality kitchens, buffets, pubs, and high street restaurants. Where the system is permanently adopted, pre-consumer waste value is reduced by 50% - 70% with no detrimental impact to the perceived quality or value of the offer to their customers. This represents a typical improvement of food cost savings of 3% to 8%, commonly a 40%+ increase in profitability for operations.

As the global leader in addressing food waste, they are committed to continuing to push the envelope on what technology can do to solve this problem. Their Vision, their new artificial intelligence-based technology, is trained to automatically track all food waste thrown away. It has won awards at the World Economic Forum and has received tremendous enthusiasm from its clients and the industry.
