Kukimi, a Berlin, Germany-based startup that delivers fresh ready-to-eat diet meals, raised a venture capital funding round.
Backers included High-Tech Gründerfonds (HTGF), seedcamp and existing partners Atlantic Labs, Valessa Tech and NewBorn Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to expand the company geographically, to continuously develop the product and to enhance the marketing strategy.
Co-founded by Laurent Kaestli and Daniel Verst, Kukimi delivers fresh ready-to-eat meals all throughout Germany. In order to guarantee taste and consistency for the ingredients, the company leverages a vacuum-cooking process which allows the preparation and preservation of foods without using any additives or preservatives.
On the website, the customer can choose between a variety of over 20 sous-vide cooked meals, including vegetarian and vegan options.
In the following months, a fitness line will be launched.
