An Insider's view of Fooda

What’s the vibe like in the office?

In one word, I would say the vibe in our office is 'Hungry'. Hungry because every person in here is driven to grow this company as quickly and effectively as possible, and you can feel that energy when you walk in the door. Hungry also because there is food everywhere all the time.
