We are Too Good To Go, a certified and proud B-corp with a clear mission: inspire and motivate everyone to take action against food waste 🌍. The movement against food waste was founded in Denmark in 2015 and that was only the beginning: currently we are active in 17 countries! In the Netherlands we started our journey in 2017 and almost 6 years later our team consists of more than 60 'Food Heroes'. Since 2024 we joined forces with the Belgium market and we now concur food waste as one international BENE team. With more than 6.5 million app downloads in the Netherlands and Belgium combined and more than 28.000 partners, we are working hard towards a world without food waste. In 2023, we were even named the most inspiring organisation in the Netherlands for the fifth time in a row!

📲 You probably know us from our app, where we offer leftover food and drinks from supermarkets, restaurants, suppliers, cafes, bakeries, hotels and specialty stores to users of our app. We have already saved more than 21 million meals from the bin in the Netherlands. Worldwide we saved more than 250 million meals, which is the CO2 equivalent of the annual emissions of 54,000 Dutch people. Now that's making an impact! But we are more than an app: whether it concerns households, schools, companies or politics: we want to inspire everyone to take action!

To combat climate change and save our planet, we must make our mission a reality. That is why we are looking for an ambitious Sr. Key Account Manager for the Dutch market who inspires, motivates and supports our retail partners in the fight against food waste.
