About Trendi

We’ve all thrown out a bag of rotten fruit before. None of us are perfect. Especially on the Trendi team, where we each have a unique story, a quirky personality, and many flaws. Our focus is undoubtedly on eliminating the food waste crisis, particularly in Canada where we waste 58% of the food we produce, with that said, we’re not tree-hugging sustainability gurus. We’re just regular people like you.

But regular people can make a big difference. You can help us work towards rescuing the 1.3 billion tonnes of unused food before it’s wasted every year, upcycle it, and make it accessible to 800 million people that go hungry daily.

We do it all with robotics, AI, automation, delicious food, and most importantly our quirky team of misfits. Our team doesn’t work here because they just need a job. They do it because this mission propels them and gives them an opportunity to personally grow and become a kick-a$$ change maker.

Trendi is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We know from experience that a diverse team that reflects our planet, partners and community stakeholders is central to ensuring varied perspectives and better ideas to solve the complex problem of food waste. Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion are unwavering and the core of how we build our team, cultivate leaders and create our impact. We do not discriminate and we are open to anyone, whoever you are, wherever you’re from, however you identify and whatever your story. If you’re qualified for the job and can get on board with our mission and community, we’re ready to talk.


Does this sound like the right opportunity to you? We’d love to hear from you!
