Sales Manager

New York, United States

At Too Good To Go, we dream of a planet with no food waste.

Imagine if there was something we could all change today that would reduce global warming by 8%. That’s how much food waste contributes to the climate crisis, and yet we continue to waste 40% of all the food produced in the US.

We’re on a mission to change this and are building our New York team now!

Our app connecting businesses with unsold food, and consumers willing to buy at a discounted rate has grown since 2016 to become the biggest in Europe, with over 31 Million users, and more than 58 million meals saved.

We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, but we are just at the start of our US journey...
