Internship at SirPlus - The Food Outlet in Berlin


We are a dynamic and experienced team with big plans for our Impact Startup. Our goal is to revolutionize the way we think about food by creating innovative solutions to reduce the massive food waste that occurs along the entire value chain. At the first “Food Outlet Shop” in Berlin, we will begin selling quality, low-priced food that would otherwise go to waste. At the same time, we are expanding our warehouse in order to save larger quantities of food and working to provide same-day delivery of boxes of rescued food. In addition to this, 1200 rescue boxes have already been pre-ordered through our ongoing Crowdfunding campaign. We will also be delivering salvaged food to other start-ups, offices, small businesses, producers, and restaurants.

We want to raise awareness and create a greater appreciation of all food by making food saving mainstream and thereby establishing SirPlus as a brand. In order to do this, we need motivated and talented interns like you!
