Job Description

Ark Foods is seeking a Recipe Developer to help improve our exciting line of vegetable products.

We are reinventing the produce aisle with a suite of single serve, one-step-prep, fresh veggies straight from our farms. They are targeted toward today’s younger consumer, who wants a no-hassle, unique vegetable experience. All for less than six bucks. Our legacy is in farming, but we consider ourselves to be a CPG company.

Ark Foods is known for popularizing shishito peppers, but now we’re deep in product development for our future lineup, including, fresh veggie noodles, cauliflower mac n cheese and others. All these new products will be sold on shelves across the USA, through existing retail relationships we already have via Whole Foods, FreshDirect, Costco, etc.

We are a startup going through a period of massive growth and are looking for help in creating delicious & cost-effective recipes using clean ingredients. That’s where you come in! We want your recipe development + costing + culinary expertise to help us expand our offerings to the masses. “Final” recipes must be scalable from a test kitchen to a co-packing facility.

Skills & Experience

  1. Understanding of consumer taste preference & trends
  2. Comfort with recipe development using only clean ingredients
  3. Documenting procedures, ingredients, and final yields, etc. throughout the entire process
  4. Be operationally focused and customer-obsessed
  5. Eye for cost savings through ingredient selection and process simplification
  6. Kitchen Experience

Ark Foods is a venture-backed, leading brand of high-end vegetable products. We combine farmers market product selection with commercial agriculture methods. We’re like Dole, but for millennials. Delicious. Clean. Sustainable.

The first vegetable we made popular was the Shishito Pepper, and we are now the largest producer in the United States. We have successfully marketed and scaled other unique veggie products, and this is just the beginning. You can now find the Ark Foods brand in leading national supermarkets and distributors nationwide.

We operate farms and processing facilities up and down the East Coast, ensuring transparency and traceability, starting with the seeds we use. This vertical integration allows us to stay true to our purpose – to feed vegetable curiosity to everyone, everywhere.
