Farmdrop is growing quickly. We're looking for a talented and experienced product manager to help lead the business forward. We have strong investors who share our mission to fix the food chain.

About Farmdrop

Farmdrop represents a new approach to food retailing whereby the benefits of cutting out the middlemen are shared between customers who enjoy fresher, healthier food at lower prices, and smaller scale producers who enjoy best-ever trading terms. Our mission is to Fix The Food Chain. We already deliver food around London, Bristol and Bath using our own fleet of electric vans and are scaling the business. Our supporters include London foodies Gizzi Erskine and Tommi Miers, we work closely with the Soil Association and have been backed by the entrepreneurs behind ASOS, Love Film, Zoopla, and Street Car. Farmdrop founder Ben Pugh has been shortlisted for the Bloomberg 2016 Innovation award for changing the environment.
