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.
Ten years ago on October 4th (world animal day) Jaap Korteweg, 9th generation farmer and meat lover, founded The Vegetarian Butcher (TVB). Together with a devoted team of chefs and scientists he created innovate and sustainable meat successors directly from beans and legumes. Great tasting meat products, perfect i-meat-ations in flavor, texture and juiciness, but without the use of the animal.
This was the start of our mission to become the biggest butcher in the world, by making plant-based meat the new standard. We try to make our mission a reality Through Craftmanship, Human Connections, Entrepreneurship, Rebelliousness, Humour, Passion, Optimism, Sustainability and Pioneering. When Unilever acquired the company end of 2018 they joined in on this mission and committed to accelerate the biggest food revolution of all time.
Since the acquisition of the TVB by Unilever, the company is scaling-up fast. In this journey at exponential pace we are looking for a Culinary Chef at Unilever R&D in Wageningen who has the passion to change the world!
Unilever R&D has built a new Global Foods Innovation Centre in Wageningen, the Netherlands. In this way Unilever creates critical mass in expertise areas to ensure that the technologies ultimately bring benefit-led, breakthrough innovations to the markets. In addition, we aim to evolve our R&D sites into innovation ecosystems to leverage the knowledge and expertise of external partners.
