Assistant Manager

Full time - Selfridges
About Natoora

We are a fast-growing company with a clear mission: to revolutionise the food system.

Suppliers to over 1,500 of the most influential restaurants in London, Paris and New York, we are equally determined to educate the general public on the impact of their food choices. Everything in our four central London stores and Eataly and Selfridges concessions is radically seasonal and fully traceable.

Educating the customer is central to our food system revolution, and flavour is the greatest conduit for change. Through fruit and vegetable tastings we can encourage home cooks to diversify their diets, eat seasonally and make more informed food choices.
