Too Good To Go

Junior Business Developer

Company description

30% of food produced is wasted. We are on a mission to change that.

Too Good To Go is a social impact company, and we reduce food waste by making surplus food from cafes, restaurants and supermarkets available to our users. You purchase food through an app, collect locally and enjoy knowing you are saving food, money - and the planet!

We’re growing fast with 15 countries currently active. But here’s what really matters: through our app, we’ve been saving one meal per second - currently, that means that more than 49 million meals have been saved from the bin - equalling more than 122,000 tons of CO2 saved!

Job description

Sounds like your kind of mission? Here is what it will entail:

As a Business Developer, you’ll identify potential partners and connect with the best food businesses (restaurants, cafes, bakeries and many more). Every week, you will either jump on your bike, on the bus or on the train to go and convince new potential partners to join the food waste movement, or work from our awesome office in Ghent (which is just a 10-minute walk from the Sint-Pieters station) and onboard new partners on the phone. 

You’ll represent and pitch Too Good To Go with clarity and passion, and show the food business owners you encounter how Too Good To Go is a win-win-win solution. You will train the partners you’ve brought on board and make sure they become top ambassadors of the food waste movement!
