Food Waste Campaigner

Zürich, Switzerland

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

Too Good To Go is a mobile app which reduces food waste by making surplus food from cafes, food stores and supermarkets available to users. Our users purchase food through the app, collect locally and enjoy knowing they are saving food, money - and the planet!

The magic of Too Good To Go has been spreading rapidly across Europe with over 20 million meals in 14 countries saved to date… And we’re happy to say, Switzerland is growing at light speed as well! But the app is just the beginning! Too Good To Go is much more than an app: We are a movement against Food Waste. We want to use our reach to sensibilise everyone and change mindsets and systems so no more food is wasted! That’s why we’re looking for a truly passionate Food Waste Warrior filled with fire to further develop our movement.

  • You will build a strong network that will enable Too Good To Go to spread the message (for example: NGOs’, food waste community groups and governmental institutions).

  • You will be responsible for the creative material that will help us change mindsets and consumption behaviours.
