This is a job for someone who sees a broken food system and actually wants to do something to help fix it. Blöde Kuh has been a committed vendor in Los Angeles area farmers markets for the past seven years, building a blueprint to show small food companies how to redefine success and build deep connections with local community.
Blöde Kuh has been making the best vegan cheeses and yogurts in Los Angeles since 2014. We’re a very mission-driven company where we focus on doing the right thing and doing it well. We encourage open communication and two-way transparency. This is not a 9 to 5 job, but we do make it a point to prioritize work-life balance for all our employees. The right applicant for this job will feel comfortable primarily working alone but cooperating with multiple groups within the company. A well-thought-out food philosophy and an understanding of the state of our current food systems will help you stand out.
