Sales Manager

Seamore might just be Europe’s hottest (or coolest) food startup. Our small company has managed to do what no one has done before: to get (normal) people to eat seaweed as an everyday food. After proving the point that it could be done we’re now ready to get the whole world to taste and embrace the future of tasty, healthy & sustainable food. And that requires seriously skilled, outrageously talented, menacingly motivated, humongously hungry Sales Power

We Seamore

Seamore is a 5-year-old food company based in Amsterdam that is leading a revolution: to turn seaweed into an everyday food. This revolution waskickstarted with the pure seaweed products ‘I sea pasta’ and ‘I sea bacon’ and then consolidated with the more accessible and convenient ‘Seaweed Wrap’. The company has established a base in 6 countries with more than 600 points of sale, has brought more than 1 million portions of seaweed onto people’s plates and has attractedworldwideattention.This year Seamore launched the ‘Seaweed Chips’ in a range of three flavours (and colours). This new exciting snack is now sold in more than 400 points of sales. This includes mainstream retailers like Jumbo, food service wholesalers like Sligro, specialized channels like fish, health food, gift stores, and snack and borrel boxes. Consumers love it.
