your role at Tony’s

As Tony’s Sourcer you are responsible for the sourcing of ingredients and packaging materials. This includes the management of price levels and other commercial conditions, the social and environmental footprint and the availability of these materials aligned with the production of the bars at Tony’s co-manufacturers. You will focus on costs, availability, quality, traceability, environmental footprint & scalability. Yeah!

You work closely together with our Sourcing Chef Sanne en Sourcing Sous Chef Joost managing the partner network, fixing operational issues and supporting NPD’s. Internally you work together with Tony’s Product Development team (Marketing, Sales, Production, Quality and Logistics) to develop new packaging and search for new ingredients. Together with Marketing, Sales and our Captain Co-Pack Marloes you also work on developing customer specific packaging like gift-boxes and displays.  

And when it comes to sourcing, you negotiate procurement costs- and conditions contributing to delivering the financial budget and gross margin targets in business cases and in the P&L. The solid supply agreements that you create always make legally sense (duh..). You also build and maintain long term relationships in a network of reliable, affordable, socially engaged suppliers and partners for the supply of ingredients, semi finished products and packaging materials. And you are responsible for developing and implementing a sustainable packaging policy.

Are you ready to raise the bar?

about Tony’s Chocolonely

Tony’s Chocolonely wants to make all chocolate 100% slave free. Not just our chocolate, but all chocolate worldwide. Not exactly the average company, right? Instead a chocolate company whose primary goal is to resolve a social issue in the world. In 2005, Tony’s Chocolonely was founded by journalists of the Dutch TV-program “Food Unwrapped” when they discovered that the large chocolate manufacturers used cocoa from farms with children slaves at work. Since then, we have grown to be biggest chocolate brand in the Netherlands. Tony’s Chocolonely wants to make people aware of the inequality in the chocolate industry, set the example that chocolate can be made differently and inspire the chocolate industry to make 100% slave free cocoa the norm in chocolate.

working at Tony’s

We are crazy about chocolate & serious about people. Our own people first. Because only with the most driven people can we reach our goals and make 100% slave-free the norm in chocolate. We want to be the best employer an employee can wish for. We invest in personal development, reward initiative and cultivate a very pleasant work environment. Equality, solidarity, lots of fun and performance are central to this.
