Job Description

Creating a Better Blueprint for our World

“We want you to dream about vegetables. Why? If we serve you unforgettable vegetables and you start dreaming about them, together we make the world a better place. The meat industry is the #3 contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. I read that in 2007. 12 months later I opened Clover with a food truck as a sort of “lab” to test ideas and “invent” a new approach to food with your help. Day 1 we had one question: is this so delicious you’ll dream about it? Everything we are today, every single recipe, everything we do, has been developed with help from our customers.” - Ayr Muir (Founder and CEO)
