The Investment

The food delivery industry has been on the rise, propelled by increasing e-commerce penetration, new consumer preferences, and changing lifestyle demanding convenience.

Freshly is a weekly subscription service delivering fresh, healthy, ready-to-eat meals directly to the customers’ doorsteps. No shopping, preparation, clean-up – just ‘heat and eat.’ All meals are prepared gluten-free with top-quality ingredients. Thanks to the implementation of an extensive vendor and ingredient screening, Freshly ensures their products exceed any food safety regulations and industry expectations for a healthy meal. Those meals are prepared according to Freshly’s standards, and the Company offers to its customers full transparency regarding the different ingredients that are used in each meal.
