Head of Global Expansion
Today, 1/3 of the food produced in the world is wasted. And that has a huge impact on the health of our planet, as 8% of greenhouse gas emissions comes from food waste!
Too Good To Go is the world's number 1 app for fighting food waste and has become an authority for solving this worldwide critical issue.
Our app has more than 17 million users across Europe and through our app, we’ve saved more than 25 million meals from the bin - that’s more than 63.000 tonnes of CO2 saved!
But we’re more than an app. Our mission is to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste together, so we’re doing all we can to create educational tools, make our knowledge as accessible as possible, find new business solutions and even change legislation to reduce food waste.
Present in 14 countries, Too Good To Go is ready to go beyond and spread the movement further in Europe but also to other continents.
This is why we need a project manager that will bring experience, passion and expertise to build the framework of our expansion and to structure it!
