A UK plant-based company is recruiting for a job which offers a £50,000 salary, the chance to travel the world tasting vegan food, and travel expenses.

Vibrant Vegan Co., a food subscription service, is looking for a ‘Director of Taste’, who will travel to places including Asia, South America, and Eastern Europe for up to four months at a time, looking for new and exciting vegan ingredients and giving feedback on their findings.

According to the company, the candidate ‘must be suitably qualified with at least three years’ experience in the food business or as Chef’. It adds that despite the company being vegan focused, the candidate will not be required to be vegan, however they must focus on solely plant-based ingredients when working.

Vegan talent

“We are always on the hunt for new talent, because I’m a firm believer that it’s the people that make a successful company,” Iain Burke-Hamilton, Founder of Vibrant Vegan Co. said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“However, I don’t think we’ve ever recruited for a job this exciting before. This is a very unique and rewarding job but despite its extensive perks we acknowledge it’s also very demanding.

“There are hundreds of ingredients and recipes across the world that haven’t been presented to the UK consumer, so we hope our new recruit will be able to inspire some new and tasty recipes for our vegan ready meal offering.

“I believe innovation is at the heart food, so I want someone with an innovative and creative mind to help us build on our current recipes.”
