Grocery shopping, like many other routine activities, has become a task we often complete on auto-pilot. But do you actually pay attention to what you are buying and if your list has evolved? When was the last time you took an audit of the food brands that are currently in your pantry, refrigerator, or freezer? How many of them existed ten years ago?

Consumers have always had highly differentiated purchase criteria when selecting a preferred product over a competitor, such as cost, ingredients, and brand loyalty. Despite that individuality, market share in most food categories has historically been concentrated within a set of incumbent portfolios, as consumers have accepted availability over personalization. While history is said to repeat itself, today’s consumers are bucking this trend by supporting smaller emerging brands that provide a higher degree of perceived customization. Food as we know it is evolving.

Many of today’s innovative food companies offer a personalized consumer experience, higher ethical standards, a focus on work culture, and the desire to do what is best for their employees and customers. In a world where remote work has become the norm for many employers, job seekers are searching for a role that allows them flexibility in their work lives. These innovative food brands have evolved into companies that can maintain their brand standards while offering remote roles for some or all of their team members. Work-life balance thrives at these companies.

Below, we are sharing some companies that are looking for candidates to fulfill remote roles on their team.
