Gousto, a London, UK-based recipe box delivery business, raised £250k in funding.
Backers included some food industry veterans, who invested £130k and the Angel CoFund, which invested a further £120k along with initial backers.
The company, which has now raised £500k in total, intends to use the funds to further improve the customer experience by introducing a number of features to make the service more customer friendly, investing in their delivery, sourcing, packaging and logistics.
Co-founded by CEO Timo Schmidt and James Carter, Gousto delivers organic, local produce in exact portion sizes, for specific recipes.
