Our Mission

Our Culture

Our People

mission

Did you know that a third of all food produced globally ends up being wasted?  It’s estimated that if food waste were a country, it would be the third highest emitter of greenhouse gases after the US and China.  

We were so outraged by this that we made it our mission to tackle the food waste problem.  Our goal is to use pioneering AI technology to significantly reduce the amount of food which is wasted around the globe.  

We are serious about it, too. We’ve set the most ambitious goal of any food waste solution globally - we want to reduce food waste for our clients by $1billion by 2025.  

We’re a registered B Corp meaning we strive to balance profit with people and the planet.  We feel proud that we are working on something which is purpose driven and contributing to a better world.

We are fiercely protective of our culture - it’s our culture which makes Winnow a truly unique place to work.  Our culture is driven by our values.  You’ll find us to be transparent and honest, ambitious and driven, inspirational and innovative.  We thrive on challenges and our pace is fast.

We’re humble people and we’re not fussed on titles.  We believe everyone has valuable opinions, and we’re eager to hear them.  

As you would expect, we love food and incorporate this into Winnow life wherever we can.  We take it in turns to organise team dinners, hold regular bake sales, arrange lunch and learn sessions and trade our favourite recipes, restaurants and home produce gardening tips via dedicated Slack channels!

group

We are a group of talented and driven professionals coming from a diverse range of backgrounds.  Our combined expertise and passion for our mission makes us a formidable team in the fight against the growing global trend of food waste.

We’re ambitious and pro-active.  We understand we are each making a direct contribution to the mission, and we are dedicated to being the best that we can be to achieve this.  

And we like each other!  Whether that’s catching up over a cinnamon bun on a Monday morning, enjoying a meal during one of the regular team dinners, or watching the fun and games at the quarterly away meetings, spending time with our friendly and like-minded colleagues is one of the highlights of daily life at Winnow.

Our Values

We are proud of our values - which we developed together during an away day - and place these at the heart of everything that we do. You’ll need to share these values if you want to join and flourish at Winnow:

People of action

Done is better than perfect, and we learn by boldly doing then rapidly improving. We’re breaking new ground, so we know things might go wrong. But we judge ourselves and each other on our reaction and our resilience.

People-of-Action
Equal parts head and heart

We’re both passionate and measured. We carefully balance the need for quick solutions and pragmatism with the ability to step back, take in the bigger picture and build for the long term.

Equal-parts-head-and-heart
Bravely honest

With each other, that means we’re a transparent organisation where healthy, respectful debate is encouraged. With our customers, we challenge them if we don’t think they’re achieving their goals, whether they be environmental or financial.

Bravely-honest
Bound by food

We’re a diverse bunch, but our belief in the value of food is the common thread in everything we do. With each other, we celebrate through our love and respect for food. With our customers, it means we work hard to develop creative tools to make it easy for chefs to value food.

Bound-by-food
Hungry and humble

Our product is revolutionary, our people are impressive, and we’re hungry for change. But, we’re just the catalyst for a bigger movement. We stay humble regardless of our success, and make chefs the heroes in this journey.

Hungry-and-humble
People and planet positive

We’re caretakers of the planet, helping to preserve and support it for now and the future. Our work already minimises the impact that the hospitality industry has on the planet, and we’re also committed to actively reducing our own footprint while doing so. We’re leaving the planet and its people better off than we found them.

Our people with purpose

We are passionate about living our values and place them at the centre of everything we do. We are excited about like minded talent who share these values, joining us in our mission:

Yien Li Yap | Business Development Manager, Singapore

Following culinary school I worked in restaurants and was shocked to see how much food got wasted.  An internet search for solutions to this led me to Winnow. It’s great working alongside people who are passionate about making the world a better place. The team spirit is fantastic and I can always count on my global colleagues for help. 

Value: Bravely honest - we put all our focus on solving our customers problems, rather than trying to close the biggest deal.

Favourite food: Sri Lankan crab curry - we eat this on Christmas day so it reminds me of happy family times.

Eve Hemingway | Operations Manager, London

I love working with our customers and helping them achieve their food waste goals.  Our partners at IKEA came and gave a talk sharing that since working with us, they had saved 10 million meals. Hearing this was pretty inspiring.

Outside of work, I love writing about food and in 2018 wrote a book called ‘Bread & Butter’. As the deadline approached I benefited from the flexibility Winnow offered by working a reduced working week.

Value: Bound by Food - when not at work you can find me at the Farmer’s market 

Favourite food: Dumplings!  Khinkali from Georgia my favourite.

I love the responsibility and trust we have and enjoy bringing and implementing new ideas.

It’s not just in your daily role either.  I was once part of a team who suggested holding a monthly charity bake sale during a brainstorming session around the culture we wanted to create in our new work space.  The suggestion won, and we have been organising these ever since!

Value: People of Action - We’re a team of 2 supporting a global business.  We can’t procrastinate, we need to get stuff done.

Favourite food: Cake!!  I have 25 sweet teeth - it has to be cake!

Financial Controller, London

I love coming to work each day and being surrounded by like minded people.  There is a positive and healthy atmosphere with a great team spirit and a real focus on People. 

I started with Winnow Singapore, but was thrilled to then transfer internally when I wanted to move closer to home and am now based in Europe selling to the French and Spanish markets.

Value: Hungry and humble - if you are hungry, motivated and passionate about what you do  there are fantastic opportunities for you at Winnow.

Food: Bread - I’m French so I grew up on bread! 

Business Development Manager, Singapore, then London

I enjoy the diversity at Winnow - both of the tech stack and the people. 

Once a year the entire global tech team get together which is great fun. Last year we spent the week brainstorming a solution for a particular food waste problem.  It’s inspiring to know that this new product idea is now being progressed by the company.

Value: Equal Parts Head and Heart - This summarises my approach to development. Caring about delivering a great user experience whilst using my head to develop quality code. 

Food: Vegan pizza - my girlfriend makes the best, topped with all sorts of goodies!

Winnow is full of passionate people who are committed to the mission and proud of the product we are developing using some of the newest technologies.  I’ve never seen teamwork like this before in my career.  It’s very special. 

Value: People of action - I love a challenge, and nothing beats bringing a great team of people together to find innovative solutions to complex problems.  We get things done, and move on to the next.

Favorite food: Grilled Calamaris - I just love them and order them whenever I’m at the seaside.

Head of Technology, Cluj

I love the Winnow culture - there is little bureaucracy and no hierarchy.  Speaking to the CEO / MD / CTO etc is not a big deal here.  It also has a family feel where everyone genuinely cares about each other.  All that whilst being an ambitious and challenging place to work with a lot of opportunity to learn and grow in a supportive and fun environment.

Value : Equal Part Head and Heart - I love to do things logically, but I'm also quite emotional.  

Favourite food : Ramen -  I love the way Japanese Ramen looks so elegant, almost artistic, and then tastes so good!

Customer Success Manager, Dubai
