The Sustainability intern forms a part of our international Sourcing & Sustainability team. This team consists of locally stationed field scouts and agronomists who work directly with farmers and processors to initiate and support conversion projects, scout for new suppliers, items or ideas and more generally continuously ensure the quality and organic integrity of our products. This local presence has enabled us to build a number of successful sourcing projects worldwide that provide us with a steady and secure supply of a wide range of organic ingredients.
The Sustainability intern will be closely working with the Sustainability manager, who is responsible for defining and implementing the global sustainability agenda for Tradin Organic. One of the most important tasks will be the clear communication and visualization of the environmental and social impacts of Tradin Organic’s ongoing activities worldwide.
