Food awareness – the demand for healthy, sustainable, nutritious products – is reaching the next level, and not just for the diets of humans. Animal food producer Yarrah has been a specialist in organic pet food for over 25 years. The organization is growing rapidly and a vacancy has opened up for an entrepreneurial and result-oriented International Sales Manager.
Yarrah: better for your pet, better for all animals.
Demand for organic products is on the rise. In 1992, long before this trend, Yarrah emerged as the first completely organic animal food producer on the market, founded out of discontent over cruelty in the pet food market. Every step of Yarrah’s production process is designed to be fully sustainable and organic. The ingredients are purchased directly from farmers who – just like Yarrah – want to make the world a better place.
Yarrah is the leading organic animal food specialist in Europe, and has set ambitious growth targets, focused on further international multi-channel expansion. Essential to this growth strategy are brand awareness, brand and channel differentiation, and further professionalization. Yarrah’s lean team consists of 18 FTU, ensuring quick validation and integration of ideas into the business. Their ambitious plans demand further professionalization, without cutting into flexibility and speed.
“We’re a small organization, which requires a team with an action-oriented, hands-on mentality. You’ll have a lot of freedom and responsibility.” – Bas van Tongeren, CEO Yarrah
