Working at Planture means working in a young, ambitious and growing team, whilst contributing to a more sustainable world by working with new ingredients for foods of the future.
It all began in 2016 in Amsterdam. Two entrepreneurs had the same dream: to change the world of food for the better. They decided to make it happen – and create a unique collaborative concept that transparently helps factories develop outlets for their ingredients.
With advanced plans of crossing the ocean in order to unroll the same successful Planture concept into U.S. territories, no day is the same when working at Planture. Join now to be part of this dynamic work environment and to support our mission to create a positive impact for the world and next generations by providing healthy food and feed ingredients, supporting the protein transition, and reducing the ecological footprint.
