At Too Good To Go, we have an ambitious goal: to inspire and empower everyone to reduce food waste together.
40% of all food produced in the world is wasted. And that has a huge impact on the health of our planet, with 10% of greenhouse gas emissions coming from food waste.
We are a social impact company and 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.
But we’re more than an app: we are a certified B Corporation with a mission to empower everyone to take action against food waste, so alongside our marketplace app, we create educational tools, explore new business solutions, and influence legislation to help reduce food waste.
We are growing fast, with our community 193 million users in 17 countries. Together, we have saved more than 200 million meals from going to waste since we started - but there’s still a lot more we want to achieve.
That means we’re looking for talented people with diverse skills and backgrounds to help us in the fight against food waste. That is where you come in: we’re looking for an exceptional Sales Specialist to join us in our Stockholm office and help grow our impact across Sweden 🚀
