About Bright Green Partners

Bright Green Partners is a global alternative protein strategy consulting boutique that was founded in 2020 and is dedicated to transforming meat and dairy production to solve some of the world's biggest challenges.

We help large corporates navigate the emerging plant-based, fermentation-derived, and cultivated meat and dairy industries. Our services focus on strategy consulting, while we continue supporting some of our current clients with innovation and operational projects along their journey. 

We're a young and ambitious consultancy with a strong track record of growth and a range of satisfied global customers like Kraft Heinz and Ajinomoto.

Our approach draws from the best elements of top management consulting and the specialized expertise of topic experts. In practice, our quality standards and rigor match those of top consulting firms, while the depth of our insight goes significantly beyond their level. We achieve this by combining our in-house team of generalist consultants, who typically come from top consulting firms like Bain and Kearney, with insights from our network of over 2,000 topic experts who join us on a project-by-project basis.

We're looking for a motivated and skilled Principal to join our team and contribute to our mission of creating a more sustainable and resilient food system.
