Head of Product

Full-Time London Salary: £65,000 Closes: 2021-02-05

Who we are

We are an established award-winning B2B FoodTech startup, founded in 2014 by two female entrepreneurs who brought together their knowledge and experience of digital technology and hospitality.
Our vision is to simplify all food information so that we can improve human health and safety through instantly and accurately communicating what is in their food. In 3 years we aim to be in 6,000 kitchens with 24,000 users and have health data on 10% of both the ageing population and children.
Kafoodle products connect commercial kitchens to their customers in the healthcare, education and retail sectors. We work with many enterprise companies in education, care, contract catering and hospitality. Our clients include Compass Group, OCS, Metropolitan Pub Company, and Havering Council.

Why work with us?
