Operations Leader Asia - The Vegetarian Butcher

Operations (Inaktiv)
Bangkok, Bangkok

Meat to please you! At the Vegetarian Butcher we’re looking for new ‘meat on the block’ to join us in the biggest food revolution of all times.

On October 4th (world animal day) 2010 Jaap Korteweg, 9th generation farmer and meat lover, founded The Vegetarian Butcher. Together with a devoted team of chefs and scientists he created innovative and sustainable meat successors directly from beans and legumes.  Great tasting meat products, perfect imeatations in flavor, texture and juiciness, but without the use of the animal. We sacrifice nothing! This was the start of our mission: to become the biggest butcher in the world.

At our core we are the purpose-driven rebels who want to be the first and the best on the plant-based meat-market. We try to make our mission a reality through Craftmanship, Human(e) Connections, Entrepreneurship, Rebelliousness, Humour, Passion, Optimism, Sustainability and Pioneering.

When Unilever acquired the company at the end of 2018, they joined in on this mission and committed to accelerate the biggest food revolution of all time. Since then the company is scaling-up fast. In this journey we are travelling (and expanding) at the speed of light and therefore we are looking for an operations Leader who has the passion to change the world!
