Receiving Supervisor (Chefs Plate)



About Us

Chefs Plate is redefining the way Canadians eat. We built Chefs Plate with one simple belief: eat better, live better. Each week we send tens of thousands of customers all the pre-measured and perfectly portioned ingredients they need to prepare delicious and healthy meals at home. We make fresher, healthier food available at better prices by rethinking the grocery supply chain from the table all the way back to the farm.

Since we began our journey, we have been blown away by the amazing customer response and have become the leading Canadian company in the expanding online recipe kit delivery market. Since we have created our own direct to consumer e-commerce channel and farm to table supply chain, we have built a diverse and highly motivated team consisting of various verticals; Technology, Logistics, Marketing, Operations, Culinary, Supply Chain, Finance and Customer Support roles. As we continue to quickly grow our teams we are looking to find the best “A” Players to join us on the journey.
