‘1 in 3 fish harvested from our oceans never make it onto a plate. We want to fix that!’

🔭 Our vision

At Rooser, we’re on a mission to eliminate the world’s seafood waste. For us, this means creating transparency and certainty in what is an incredibly tough industry.

We’re building the world’s first seafood trading platform dedicated to connecting seafood processors with wholesalers.

We want to eradicate the fragmented processes and volatility that plague the industry & get seafood flowing more efficiently through the supply chain. As a perishable product, increased speed means longer shelf life and, ultimately, less waste.

Sounds simple, but this is no small feat.

That’s why we’re looking for the most talented and passionate people to join us on our mission and help turn this vision into reality.

With backing from Index Ventures (Etsy, Farfetch and Just Eat), Google Ventures (Uber, Stripe, StockX) and Point Nine Capital (Zendesk, DeliveryHero, Revolut), we’re not alone in believing in this vision.

🏅 What we value

Rooser was founded on the idea that we should leave the planet in a better way than it was given to us. We want to work with people who have the same values we do.
