Internship Marketing & Communication-Garden Gourmet

Marketing internship, this is your challenge

Vegetarian food is hot. For various reasons, more and more people are actively reducing their meat consumption. This brings opportunities, both for the planet and for responsible entrepreneurship! For over30 years, Garden Gourmet has been discovering, developing and producing tasty, vegetarian products based on wheat, soya and vegetables: meat substitutes. All products are 100& vegetarian, some vegan. In the Netherlands, a large part of Albert Heijn’s meat substitute shelf consists of Garden Gourmet products and we have expanded the range of products to other retailers as well!

In addition to the Netherlands, the products are also available in Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden and other countries. We are market leader in the markets and countries in which we operate. The market is growing explosively – so every effort is being made to maintain and further expand our position.

From 1st of February 2022 we are looking for a new intern. Do you think it is a challenge to work in a fast-growing category and do you have passion for the food industry? Then we are looking for you!
