We are one team on a mission to reshape the oldest and largest industry on the planet - food.
Currently, up to 40% of the world’s food is never consumed while 815 million people are undernourished. The supply chain is grossly fragmented and, as the population and its demands only continue to grow rapidly, the food industry urgently needs to be transformed.
Our goal is to revolutionize and digitize the entire supply chain globally by connecting all players, but also empowering them locally to reduce waste, meet demand, and increase their bottom line.
Today Choco provides a free digital platform that connects restaurants with their suppliers; an effortless tool that optimises communication, eliminates operational inefficiencies and simplifies the entire ordering process for all sides. So far we have impacted tens of thousands of restaurants and suppliers across four continents but this is only the first step.
As the fastest growing tech start-up in Europe, we’re moving quicker than ever and assembling the most driven, humble and intelligent people to take us to the next level.
To disrupt the status quo, we are looking for the hyper-motivated hustlers, optimistic go-getters and versatile thinkers who have the passion and determination to go to the moon together.
We know the road won’t be easy but we’re 100% committed to our mission because we care about the world we live in and the one we leave behind.
Think you’re up for the challenge? Join us!
