Job Title: Food Safety & Quality Assurance Technician

ABOUT US

We create naturally plant-based original products.


How we eat and what we eat is changing, and changing fast. Yet, plant-based products are still seen as an “alternative”, which usually means a compromise. We are changing that starting with our ‘Collection 01’, a dairy-free experience consisting of three products: Burrella, Crematta and Superstraccia. See our products in use here.
