For LikeMeat we are looking for a Food Scientist in Oss. LikeMeat produces meat alternatives for the consumer markets. LikeMeat products are now becoming available throughout Europe. They are already on sale in 15,000 supermarkets and 10 European countries. Soon everyone will be able to experience the taste, convenience and health of a plant-protein future.
The Mission: Make their food the obvious choice, every day of the week, by delivering awesome products with kick-ass branding. At LikeMeat they believe that it’s not really complicated to change what we eat without changing what we are used to. They believe that we should be able to eat well and live an enjoyable, healthy life with both old traditions and new habits. Not either/or. For this reason, they have created a way of doing without meat on the menu – but not having to do without. There’s no sacrifice, because their products have all the texture and flavours that make your mouth water, and there’s no guilt at the grill. They’re not a meat substitute, but an obvious choice. They don’t want to change ourselves – they just want to change our menu.
Like meat support sustainability by being good for the environment. LikeMeat continually evaluates how they work and look for ways how they can become even better and more sustainable.
The Vision: To create a future with a better way of eating for a greater way of life.
