Head Baker

Full time
About Natoora

We are a fast-growing company with a clear mission: to revolutionise the food system. With hubs in London, Paris, Milan, New York, Los Angeles and Copenhagen, we’re creating access to consciously-produced and grown food at a scale unparalleled by anyone else in the industry. Since 2004, we have been building a unique supply chain that connects chefs and home cooks alike to an ever-growing community of independent growers, co-operatives and producers.

From the way food is grown, reared and produced to how it gets into kitchens, we’re breaking down barriers built up by the industrial system and sparking a grassroots movement for a better future of food. This is your chance to be a part of it.

Our new bakery venture from Natoora will be led by a globally renowned baker from North America, committed to ancient techniques and flavour-forward grains. The entire methodology behind the wholesale bread bakery will reflect our ethos - from stone milling our own fresh flour everyday, to baking with sourdough, and using the whole grain, to tapping into the full extent of our sourcing network for conscientiously chosen ingredients.
