This is an opportunity to become an integral member of Reduced. A sustainable, rapidly growing food production company based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

We're looking for a Production Manager to run and develop our production in our newly set-up factory in Nordhavn, Central Copenhagen.

We produce flavour enhancers based on sidestreams and excess produce. Our aim is to turn waste from the food- and agriculture industry into delicious tasting liquids, pastes and powders. This includes both plant- and animal-based waste, such as egglaying chickens, faulty mushrooms. We do this through large-scale fermentation.

The Production Manager will be responsible for planning, overseeing and partaking in processing, packaging and clean-up/sanitizing.

Experience within food production and equipment, fermentation, facility and machinery maintenance, food safety, tracking inventory, managing production employees and organizing workflows, is important.

All of the above are established in the market, both in retail and wholesale - with the

exception of Organic Umami Drops, Mushroom. They're all based on different varieties of waste streams from the food industry.

We produce both types of Umami Drops at our factory in Nordhavn, Copenhagen. This is where the Production Manager will have his/hers day-to-day.

Right now we're working on bringing the next product to market. The Umami Drops based on mushrooms. It will be the first of many exciting projects that will be the main part of the job as we continuously strive to deliver more solutions to address different food waste problems –creating flavorful products in the process – Taste From Waste.

Working at

Reduced is an innovative food production company. We specialize in creating high-quality food products made from excess produce. Our mission is to reduce food waste by using vegetables, protein and other nutritional sources leftover from the conventional food industry. Right now, we put all our time and effort into creating sustainable stock and fermented flavour enhancers. We aim to develop a broad portfolio of products that will replace conventional choices. Always with a focus on taste and sustainability. In 6 months we have developed and launch four products based on excess produce, without seeking any financing. The products are sold in 55 supermarkets (Irma, SuperBrugsen, Meyers Deli etc), at and in food service. The products are developed with one thing in mind: "How can we make taste from waste?". These are the six products: 1) Organic Umami Drops, Chicken: Made from egglaying chickens in excess from egg production. The chickens usually are used for biogas. We are changing this. 2) Organic Umami Drops, Mushroom: Made of excess faulty mushrooms from mushroom production. Instead of them going to waste, we create delicious vegan umami from them. 3) Organic Chicken Stock: Made from egglaying chickens in excess from egg production. The chickens usually are used for biogas. We are changing this. 4) Shellfish Stock: Made from some of the 12 billion shore crabs in the Danish seas. Shore crabs are a massive problem for fishermen and they harm marine ecosystems. 5) Organic Vegetable Stock: Made from nordic seaweed and fragments of dried mushrooms. Seaweed is considered as one of the most overseen and essential resources of future food. 6) Organic Veal Stock: Made from bull calf bones in excess from milk production. There is little demand for bull calf bones. We strive to change the value chain. We now have a proven product-market fit and are looking into scaling our operation.
