ABOUT NATOORA

We are a fast-growing company with a clear mission: to revolutionise the food system.

We deliver radically seasonal produce to over 1500 restaurants in London, New York and Paris - we count among our customers some of the world’s most forward-thinking chefs.

We also engage directly with home cooks through our Natoora delivery app, as well as in our stores and concessions, and online via Ocado, Waitrose and Monoprix. We are actively seeking to change the way people understand fresh produce by putting flavour and biodiversity back onto the shelves.

Be part of a more meaningful and responsible food system that preserves seed varieties, growing techniques & traditions that are threatened by modern industrial farming and supermarket culture.

You will proactively engage with your contacts and visit them regularly to keep them up-to-date on seasonal produce and our mission. You will play a key part in planning their menus and offers, as well as resolving any issues if and when they arise.
