Too Good To Go

Ghent, Belgium
Posted on Wednesday, September 13, 2023

At Too Good To Go, we have an ambitious mission: to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste together.

More than 1/3 of all food produced in the world is wasted. And that has a huge impact on the health of our planet. 10% of greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste and loss.

Through our marketplace app, we connect businesses that have unsold, surplus food, with consumers who can buy and enjoy it at ⅓ of retail value. We are a certified B Corporation with a mission to empower everyone to take action against food waste. Alongside our marketplace app, we create educational tools, explore new business solutions, and influence legislation to help reduce food waste.

We’re growing fast: Our community of 78 million registered users and 199,000 active partners across 17 countries, have together already saved 257 million meals from going to waste - avoiding almost 644,000 tonnes of CO2e!

Too Good To Go was named in FastCompany’s March 2022 list of the World's Most Innovative Companies, and was honoured to be included in TIME’s list of the 100 Most Influential Companies of 2022.

We’re looking for an Operations Specialist Intern to join the Belgian superstar team at Too Good To Go in Ghent (or Brussells).

Your mission
You will join a team working on a new and existing business model to rapidly expand our capability to save more manufactured food from being wasted. We measure our success in the volume of food saved from being wasted, sold through our app. Your contribution to the team will impact the scalability of this model as we work hard every day to get everything done in time. Reporting to the Operations manager, you will support her in running our daily business as we purchase, store, pack and ship parcels to consumers in Belgium.

During your time with us you will learn up close what it takes to run the day to day operation of such a mission.
