Small World Food
Small World Food is a worker-owned cooperative based in Rochester, New York. Small World consists of three divisions: Bakery (bread, sweets, granola, fresh-ground flour, etc.), Fermentery (miso, sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles, etc.), and Ice Creamery (dairy & vegan ice cream). We buy our ingredients directly from local organic farmers, and sell our products at local farmers' markets and wholesale to restaurants, cafés, and retail stores.
Our core values are based on:
- enriching our local & regional community by providing access to food that is both delicious & nourishing
- supporting local farms & farmers by providing a market for high-quality produce and paying a fair price
- cooperative business / workplace democracy as a way to empower people
- spreading knowledge & skills about food, communities, and cooperatives
We are seeking people who enjoy working with food, love doing hard physical labor, and are excited about being a co-owner of their business. Prior experience in farming, food service, or business is a plus, but not required. There are opportunities to work in many different parts of the cooperative.
