Why work with us?

 

We're a bunch of food nerds :-)

We are a young but fast-growing company who has a special love for food.  We offer a fun and supportive working environment, where you can learn lots about food science and gain insight on running a small business. We started selling at farmers markets in the summer of 2016 but we’re now expanding all over the city to serve various specialty stores, restaurants, and caterers. We work hard and long hours only to bring the best quality tempeh to Vancouver, which we pride ourselves in. We're passionate about continuously improving and staying on top of our game: we love developing new types of tempeh, derivatives, and recipes. We have lots of exciting things lined up for Tempea, and we'd love to share that success with the perfect candidate.

Is that a yes?

Send us a brief introduction and a copy of your resume to contact@tempea.ca. The successful candidate is expected to start immediately, training will be provided.
