Digital Growth Specialist - Contract (Full-time)

Location: Toronto / Remote


At Neophyto Foods, our goal is to make it easier for everyone to choose foods that are delicious as well as kind to the planet. When the plant-based cheese products at the grocery store failed to meet our own cheese loving standards, we created our own. The results were so good that we decided to share them with others! Today, we use our food science ingenuity to make plant based versions of everyone’s favourite foods without compromising on taste, texture or sustainability.
