Perwyn led a £30m funding round to support Gousto, UK’s leading supplier of subscription meal kits, in its impressive expansion strategy.
With its focus on automated production and data-science, Gousto is offering consumers the most advanced value proposition in regards to choice, delivery options, short lead times, reduced waste and competitive pricing. This positions the company ideally to drive the UK recipe box market which is expected to exceed £1.5bn in 2022.
Timo Boldt, CEO and Founder of Gousto commented: “Our vision has always been to be the UK’s best loved way to eat dinner. Today’s funding from Perwyn is testament to the complete confidence in our ability to do this. In the busiest of worlds, consumer shopping behaviours are rapidly changing. Busy families increasingly have less time for the “big shop”, but still want to cook differing, quality meals and maintain a healthy, balanced diet.”
Andrew Wynn, Founder and Managing Partner at Perwyn noted: “We are delighted to be making this investment and joining the exciting journey that Gousto is on. We have been highly impressed with Timo and the team’s entrepreneurial drive and demonstrated success to date. We believe the company will go from strength to strength by bringing new and innovative ways for consumers to prepare and eat healthy, fresh and delicious meals at home.”
