A Better Plant-Based Future

Upfields purpose is to make people healthier and happier with nutritious and delicious, natural, plant-based food that is good for you and for our planet.

When people choose our plant-based products over a dairy product, carbon emissions are avoided. These emissions add up: in 2020, our consumers avoided more than 6 million metric tons. We call that The Upside.

By striving to achieve our purpose, and helping more and more people switch to responsible plant-based eating, that Upside grows. That’s how we are delivering A Better Plant-Based Future.

You have at least 5 years of experience in a customer sales role within the food industry selling products and solutions. You know your way around the foodservice industry and easily manage trends, technologies and markets. You have experience developing new channels and bringing in new customers with your excellent business acumen!

You speak and write both Swedish and English fluently.
